Better Ash

Love surges up
an overwhelming fascination
with an other.

Passion flares
and fires burn too hot.
Life's bane and inspiration
all at once.

Magnetically, our souls
are pulled together;
beyond our want or wish
or even will.

Yet what good a flame
that only leaves
love's ashes scattered
in the blowing wind...?

Or ugly scars that never
have a chance of healing
again... Better ash,
just blowing in the wind...

...for ashes never feel
the pain at all...
