Too close

Your standing too close to the fire

But it’s seductive and draws you close every time

Your standing too close to the fire

But it warms you to your very tippy toes

Its colors burn so brightly, so violently

Your standing too close to the fire but it turns you to mush on the inside

Your standing too close to the fire but you don’t care if it burns you up again.
