Burning Heart
larrylark

Where do we start?
 1
Inside your heart
 2
which I will cut free,
 3
leave dangling from the bush of desire.
 4
Has our fire caught hold?
 5
Will the flames leap higher?
 6
The forest might burn down
 7
but I will still hear your voice,
 8
While walking through embers,
 9
kicking up ash.
 10
Panache is but a disguise.
 11
I remain a fragile being
 12
who feels himself alone.
 13
Except when i walk
 14
in the smouldering forest,
 15
my home,close to the heart of you.

A read this as a tribute to sometimes destructive nature of wanting to be loved. Done with well chosen theme, and signed out with a fine, powerful metaphor.
