About the poem

It’s about how love is not falling for someone, it’s rather like the phoenix that rises from the fire. Here fire being a metaphor for love.┬áLove is like the fire, hot, raging and wild.



By Metaphors_More


I felt a burning desire
called love one day. Yes it
burnt all I had into hay. I
tried not to let it touch my
depths, but even then like a
lit paper, my heart turned
into ashes. For a fraction of
second as I thought of
letting you go, you came
closer and love burnt my
soul. I still ponder, if love
burns, why would someone
I’d rather rise like a
Phoenix and burn you more.
