Paper Heart

Love is dangerous
A single spark igniting 
A blaze throughout your
Body
A blaze that engulfs 
Your mind and turns all reason to ash
The dull embers
Dance in the delicate folds 
Which make up your paper heart 
Enveloped by this sickness-
This curse-
That feeds on you as if you
Were nothing more than kindling
The thin flakes of dust flit of your body
Reducing you to embers
Each fragment representing the passion
That is now gone
Burnt out
Leaving you cold
Awake
Afraid
And devastatingly alone
