Intertwined Flames

Her room was dark and quiet

The sound of a lighter

Cut through the black

Followed by an image

That’s been burned behind my eyelids

Since I kissed her goodbye

The flame beneath her pierced nose

Caught the floral arrangement in her hand

And lingered in her eyes’ reflection

The flame within my chest

Singed my self control

And longed to intertwine our fire
