Fires

We  are  living  in  a  generation  of  people,
that  are  great  at  starting  fires
but  horrible  at  keeping  them  alive.

People  who  find  it  so  easy 
to  awaken  something  so  raw  and  powerful 
only  to  let  it  burn  out  mere  moments  later. 

I,  along  with  countless  others,  would  rather, 
be  consumed  entirely  by  the  warm  flame  of  an  embrace
than  be  left  cold  and  lonely  with  an  empty  pit.

Yet  the  other  half  doesn’t  truly  understand
just  how  delicate  a  smoldering  heart  is.
