Wildfire - Poem by Nosheen Irfan

With your fire
My heart is alight
I implore you
Let it burn
Till the end of time
For it has taught me
To love, to feel
To rejoice, to heal
Its hot tingle is no pain
Its leaping flames are a balm
Melting my heart softly
Turning it to gold
Like the sun's glorious hue
A fireball, untamed till it lasts
So is my heart
Raging uninhibited
Unheeded to the wind's whispers
But I'm afraid
Unreasonably, perhaps morbidly
That it's burning itself to black soot
For what if you don't care
No more, to keep it going
As it grows
Beyond the wildfire of your imagination
What if you say
From fire to ashes
It will be, some day
If not today.

    Speaks a great truth. Passion of the degree described in the poem can seem (and often is) insustainable. And so, the fireball, raging and uninhibited, eventually burns itself down to black soot.
    Phenomenal images to bring to life this concept of an intense love in its waning hours. Beautifully expressed
