the heart on fire
enclosed within the intricate design
of being

fueled by all and everyone
allowed to touch
the light within

yet if closed away
and never allowed the air of day
or the fuel of others caring

the fire slowly smothers
and the love that would ignite
drifts far away

to the light within your heart
and let the love flow free
