Love is a Fire

August 7, 2012
Love is a fire,
Decimating all around it.
Devouring hearts.
Yet as alluring as a fireplace.
Enticing its victims.
Swindling them into the forest.
Ready to char them down.
One by one they catch on.
But so captivating,
So Enchanting,
So exposing.
That's the precious thing of life.
Rain comes and banishes the blister amidst.
The charred forest is revived and rises again.
Waiting ...
Waiting for that fire to bare love's eyes.
Unshield loves face.
Open loves heart.......

Good poem! I like the energy that is present throughout this piece. The symbolism is not confusing and is used effectively. I really get an honest vibe starting from the line "But so captivating", which I find very impressive, seeing that many modern poems lack open honesty. Great work!
