Burn Unit

You said you liked the heat
And moved closer to the fire
You begged to see me lose control
In anger or desire
But how were you to know
What so few have learned
You cannot come this close
Without also getting burned.

Complicated Just Means Interesting

I am hellfire and a perfect storm
Served with a cup of tea
I am peaceful and avenging
At a picnic beneath a tree
I am childlike joy and fury hot
Stretched napping in the sun
I am solitude and sheer desire
When the day is finally done
Don’t ask me to be one way only
If you do, I’ll only fail
I can bring you heaven, love
But I’ll also give you hell.
