Eye spy you again,
I'm a moth to your flame,
and I'm not quick to put this fire out.

Keep playing your games,
I'm a moth to your flame,
and I'm willing to let you win.

Stop flying away,
I'm a moth to your flame,
and I'm not ready to let you go.

I don't really write poems often, but after reading so many amazing poetry submissions I thought 'why not' so hear it is. :)

The repetition of moth to your flame is something I find very interesting in your poem showing that you are always drawn to them and don't want to fight that feeling. Very well done.
