Pilot Light

the flame at my core
this passion for you
sometimes flickered, sizzled and sparked

yet grew all the more
as flames tend to do
and lit up the limitless dark

you left me quite sore
(red dwindled to blue)
internally burning my heart

but blue flames endure
they burn slow and true
and wait to reignite, restart
