Inferno Flame

This Burning desire to touch the flame,

This Burning desire to say your name,

Over and over and over again.

This Burning desire.

At each hour, another sixty minutes thinking of you.

This Burning desire to touch the flame,

This Burning desire to say your name,

This Burning desire,

This Burning desire,

A fire, a flame, an incredible heat.

Afraid to touch, afraid to graze.

For if I do, I may continue to crave.

Crave a taste of a forbidden fruit.

Where there’s Pineapples and Mangos;

I constantly crave you…

This Burning Desire,

Impeccable fire,

A Flame that’s tirelessly desired…

As I gaze into the embers that burn,

My mind helplessly becomes trapped in a daze.

Lost in a trance as I watch but not touch the flame.

Afraid of the burn it may yield,

Afraid of the heat it may contain.

Afraid that if I touch this flame,

I may be covered in bruises and ashes.

With no one to change my bandages…

This Burning desire,

This Burning flame.

When it’s all said and done,

Will I embrace or burn out the flame?
