    Enjoy the fire
    Be tantalized by its unstructured flame
    But know when the fire gets too hot
    Then you'll never have to ask
    Should the fire remain?
    There's a sense of enjoyment
    When playing with fire
    The heat feels good
    Perhaps even warming a supressed desire
    Feeling even better at a distance
    Like enjoying the beauty of Tigers for instance
    But fire does not discriminate
    That's why it's a lesson children learn
    Play with fire
    And you will be burned

    hmmmmm

    I've read this piece over a few times, Heartbeat. And it reads the same: "Warning".

    You are a clever one. :)

    Fire can burn, but it also keeps us warm. Decisions, decisions, huh? Tight write.
