By Fire

Firelight flickers across your skin

tracing all the places where

recently my fingers have been.

In this moment it would appear

that whispering three words

is the only thing that I fear.

What if you were to actually hear

what my heart screams so loudly

but my mind finds so unclear?

Is it still possible this is a sin,

could it last forever if we let it

or should we have never let it begin?
