wildfire: come closer, i dare you

come closer.

don’t be scared.

i’m not going to lie though,

i do bite.

& there is nothing i love more

than blood dripping

from my petal-soft lips.

 

– you crave it,

our mystique,

our bodies to warm your sheets.

 

i rage,

you know.

 

a storm –

you smell the sulphur

i am the lightning

the thunder

the hurricane

the fire.

 

i will engulf you

swallow you

– shout my name,

i dare you –

until all you taste

is the ash

i leave behind.

 

come closer,

don’t be scared.

you will be left with the scars of our uprising
