Aspects


The flame of love burns with pain.
For some it just flickers,
Reaching fruition only briefly before dying down.
While others see it smolder continuously,
Burning steadily, remaining forever,
Maybe unrequited, hopefully returned.
But for some it burns bright and fast,
Consuming everything in one incandescent moment.
It is passionate and blinding,
Leaving only the one truth,
That it is brief but timeless,
And when it ends, the pain it leaves,
Is brief but timeless.
