Bonfire

Is love fleeting as the summer wind?
Or is it like a marble stable
I liken it to a sphinx
Because it confounds me
Is love like the ocean?
Deep, swelling within you like the tide
Does it leave you wandering in the desert
Is it just a great mirage?
Is it like the oak or the willow?
Steadfast, but yielding
No. Love is a bonfire in your heart
If you neglect it, the coals will
Chill you in the morn
But stoked with the right logs
It’ll burn through all your nights alive
