Fires and Ashes

image

 

I used to be the fire
that melts the ice
in your veins
While others
turn to cold stone
at the curve of your lips.

You asked me to burn you
with quiet gaze
and nimble touch
and feverish mouth
until the passion consumes
our whole being.

But when our heartbeats
stopped pounding so hard
and we caught our breath,
you had a sad smile
and I have sad eyes
and we both realized
everything we touched
turned to ashes.
