Flames

Do I intimidate you?

(Rhetorical question,
I’m sure it’s true).

But isn’t that
the very best part
of what makes me
who I am?

And wouldn’t you
like to know more?

I didn’t ask
to burn this brightly
and I don’t know how
to shut it off.

And I wouldn’t do it
just to please you anyway.

I can’t help it if
you don’t get me,
and it’s up to you
to want to try.

There is
no time
to waste.

Flames go out
all the time.
