Aflame

Strike a match
Light the fire
Will you set yourself aflame
For the one who will
Only watch your pyre
Burn the blaze twist and turn
Crackling and hissing
Dreaming of kissing
For whom will you
Set yourself on fire
If the lover that you crave
Hides behind the cattails
Leaves you in the shadows
Only to wail and moan
For affection
Why ignite your heart
To fall from your desire

For the heat of it all
Thousands of miles left to crawl
This desert will not give you
What the one who pours their ocean
Out as the water bearer will
Rescuer to their beloved
Spilling every last drop
There will be nothing that could stop
The passion of this love savior
Who is liberated in the center
Of your fruit
A tree of sanctity
In the middle of
Your spicy warm enticing
Mango heart
