POEM| Chasing Fire

Talking to you
is like chasing fire
wondering how it’ll feel
under my feet

Thinking of you
is like walking into fire
hoping I’d handle
the heat of the flames

Falling for you
is like chasing fire
hearing my heartbeat
as it thunders through the burn

Being with you
is like walking into fire

praying I’d survive the scars
it’ll leave behind
