Playing With The Fire

So bright,
So magnificent,
It was,

Dancing in it's own powerful way,
So as to play tag with you,
Sparkling red out into the sky,
To touch you,

You back away,
Knowing this game is getting out of hand,
The fire stretches it's light towards you,
Telling you it has not had enough,

You fight the urge to come near,
To play,
The game of life and death,
Still the pull of the burn,
Touched the tip of your nose,

It's burning me,
You force yourself to realize,
Pulling away slowly,
As if you loved the burn,
How could it be so captivating?
