Love Like Fire

Updated on November 11, 2010

Love Like Fire

A poem about love's after-effects.


Original song found at http://www.myspace.com/jeannepoisson

Love Like Fire

Consume my oxygen

Burn me deep

Your smoke signals

Make me weep

Quick to flicker

Fast to fade

Scorch my hands

And burn my face.

How can they liken it to flame,

When fire becomes cold,

Burned-out pain?

Consume my oxygen

Burn me deep

Your smoke signals

Make me weep

Quick to flicker

Fast to fade

Scorch my hands

And burn my face.

How can they liken it to flame,

When fire becomes cold,

Burned-out pain?

Consume my oxygen

Burn me deep

Your smoke signals

Make me weep

Quick to flicker

Fast to fade

Scorch my hands

And burn my face.

How can they liken it to flame,

When fire becomes cold,

Burned-out pain?

Consume my oxygen

Burn me deep

Your smoke signals

Make me weep

Quick to flicker

Fast to fade

Scorch my hands

And burn my face.

How can they liken it to flame,

When fire becomes cold,

Burned-out pain?

Consume my oxygen

Burn me deep

Your smoke signals

Make me weep

Quick to flicker

Fast to fade

Scorch my hands

And burn my face.

How can they liken it to flame,

When fire becomes cold,

Burned-out pain?

Consume my oxygen

Burn me deep

Your smoke signals

Make me weep

Quick to flicker

Fast to fade

Scorch my hands

And burn my face.

How can they liken it to flame,

When fire becomes cold,

Burned-out pain?

      hmm and i guess love does kinda do that to ya. get you stuck on the person, get you all caught up, doing the same mistakes over and over again, getting burned, losing breath, falling head first to concrete, and all the while still feel like your floating on a cloud whenever your with this person. u repeat yourself becuz u want to remember this forever.
