He left because he
was afraid.
Not all men
are accustomed to
roaring flames
and the eyes
of storms.
Not all men are
used to things
that they cannot tame
or control.
But someday,
I will find a man
who does not seek to tame
my fire.
I will find a man
who has no desire to
stifle me,
but who strives to burn
with me.
And maybe then
the light that we create
will be worth more
than the ashes we lay.

I was so sentimental about you I’d break any one’s heart for you. My, I was a damned fool. I broke my own heart, too. It’s broken and gone. Everything I believe in and everything I cared about I left for you because you were so wonderful and you loved me so much that love was all that mattered. Love was the greatest thing, wasn’t it?
