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.
