You try so hard to keep our flame alive.
But we falter.
We falter each time our flame flickers in my frosty whispers.
And you say those blazing words.
Sweltering with passion.
For we burnt out the very moment my steely gaze doused your scorching fires.
Yet you persist.
Plummeting deeper into the murky chasm of my heart.
Until you see hope.
Sparks glowing- not within me.
And now it is no less than an inferno.
I'll fondly remember that autumn day.
The copper leaves incandescent.
The pumpkin patch aflame.
They breathe memories.
While all I do is survive on the embers you left behind...
