When I fell in love I looked at your stars The year 1982 9 Fire in Feng Shui I realized that you are like fire You came into my heart A slow burn, an ember And throughout the four chambers You grew to an inferno You burned away all traces of those who came before Those who haunted those rooms Like cobwebs that hung in the rafters I was renewed I was free And in the ashes of former loves Only you remained
This poem was written for my partner. It was an idea I had held onto for awhile. Before him, I was carrying torches for a number of people but when I fell in love with him, I felt such a warmth in my heart and it was like a purifying process. None of the others mattered anymore, I was free from all those old ties to start fresh.
