He was a bright spark,
She his old flame,
And when they got together
Fire burned again.
They rubbed together for a while
Blazing hot on tinder,
Burning looks, smouldering smile
Their passion couldn’t hinder.
Soon the hot and fiery pair
Could hold it in no more,
Igniting like a flare,
The furnace began to roar.
They consumed all they could find,
Eaten up by their desire
They scorched each other’s mind
And loving heat became a pyre.
At first they gave out warmth and light
And licking tongues became a joke
For as the fire began to bite
Their passion all went up in smoke.
When now they meet it all feels black,
Burning love has left their soul
Embers glow, but flames they lack
And all has turned to ash and coal.x
