up in flames

prestami le tue mani
ph: c-loser

B,

Some people dream of slowly walking away in silence as something spectacular goes up in flames behind them. Like the number one thriller that everyone dreams could be their life. And here I am to say...I watched you walk that walk, while the flames simply engulfed me. I wasn’t ready to burn or be burned. No one knew to save me, except the one that lit the fire.

It’s magnificent from your view, but what about me. I’m too solid to be destroyed but God, this hurts, this hurts me more and more. I can’t find a place that isn’t marked with your perfection. I can’t find of clean piece in the wreckage to rebuild. But when it happens in a small town, the foundation never really disappears.

Give in...come back...and love ME. Stop looking, stop walking further into the distance. Come here and save me. I am telling you B that you will not ever find a heart that can withstand your flame. No heart can hold on this tight when all odds are pulling the other side. Turn around and look, I’m still here. There will never be a time when you turn around and don’t see me standing here.

You may have to walk back through flames but I’m the only one that can make it through them to love you when the smoke clears. Choose me, Love me.

  4. absolutely brilliant metaphor illustrating the destructive power of love. this is true, deep, undying love. wonderful to read something straight from the aching heart. i pray your wounds will heal into magnificent scars that remind you that you once loved so deeply it will never leave you entirely.

  9. Beautiful analogy. I have been feeling this way for months now. He was my first love and we reunited years later in a different state. But now he is gone again and I don't know what or how to feel...except alone.

  17. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find the majority
    of your post's to be precisely what I'm looking for. Does
    one offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs?
    I wouldn't mind writing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome weblog!
