The lonely flame that dances bright
Casting shadows into the night
A mesmerising flicker of heat
Once a curse but now a treat
A moment’s pain when you get too close
A fleeting second, a memory morose
The beauty of a deadly flame
Once entering into this game
The pain becomes like second nature
An addiction with the danger
Most don’t understand the pain
The way it’s craved, a relief gained
But compared to the dancing flame
When patterns repeat but not the same
Can we a expect a life with structure
Or is it simply doomed to rupture?
