Fire burns its way through my mind,
As your soft crackling seduces my soul,
Through passages in my head you stole.
My sleep cannot be slept,
For the heat is too strong.
Hissing in my ears like a mesmerising song.
Don’t play with fire,
The saying goes,
Don’t come running hither with your woes.
I care not,
Of what I’ve learnt,
For I have already been burnt.
Warm me with your flickering flames,
Charm me into a deadly trance,
Draw me in too far to advance.
