The suddenness of the fire
lit her eyes
with an inner conceit
I did not understand.

She crouched toward the flame,
while keeping a distance.
Contemplative
and intrigued,

I approached her.
A glow bronzed her lips,
singed a hole
through my vision of her.

If I could grasp your hair,
I wanted to say,
to keep it from touching the flame,
I would. I would.

You'd what? she asked.
Her smile edged out
any threat of damage --
that close to her.

Did I say that out loud?
I asked (that
close). Her hand
found mine,
within the smoke.

A flickering beam
fell through the trees.
We wended our way
back home.

*melting in this fire*
how do some people make you say thoughts out loud without knowing it? some kind of voodoo magic.

Yep. It can lead to quite revealing moments, as this poem shows.
