‘Nice people don’t necessarily fall in love with nice people.’

– Jonathan Franzen

An Open Flame.

A poem.

 

where there’s fire

it will burn

and we all grow up

to learn that the prettiest things

are often those

that hurt us the most.

 

and some of us

learn the hard way

flaying our skin on

an open flame

and others never know –

they’re just told to stay away.

 

and that’s the difference

between us

a simple, red hot burn

but it’s enough

to be all the difference

you and i are from different worlds.

 

you sat by the fire

watching the flames dance

and seeing beauty.

and there in the background,

i sat from a distance

and saw the danger instead.

 

our lives are shaped

around our burns

and some have more than others,

i wonder what it would be like

if my burns

weren’t all that mattered.
