“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
― Robert Frost

Your flame touched me and burned me,

My skin scorching red hot with your touch.

The paper poems inside my chest, my heart,

Crinkled at the edges and burned to ash.

The light that followed your fire found me.

It showed me who you really were,

Behind those firecracker eyes of yours

And those sizzling lips that kissed me.

Smoke curls from my own lips now.

My pen sets the pages alight,

I have learned to create my own fire,

After all, I am a trailblazer.

The author's comments:

I have several poems inspired by fire. The trailblazer line is actually a reference to a poem that I haven’t put on but I will soon.
