Because a fire burns fast

Let’s just love

Let’s just breathe

Let’s just exist.

What the fuck are we all so worked up about?

I never meant to take it all so serious

I remember when I

Was simply laughing by your side.
Some connections

Are immediate

And for always.

Just because a fire burns fast 

Does not mean

That it will die.

Some conversations

Tilt the axis of the universe

And nothing 

Remains

Quite the same 

After that.
So let’s just laugh

Let’s just be free

Let’s just exist

What the fuck are we all so worked up about any way?
Did I mention I adore this human experience

Even though I don’t

Have a clue

What the hell I’m doing 

From day to day.
Some connections

Are immediate

And for always.

Just because a fire burns fast 

Does not mean

It will burn out. 

Some conversations

Tilt the axis of the universe

And nothing 

Remains

Quite the same 

After that.

One thought on “Because a fire burns fast

  1. Reminds me of this DH Lawrence poem – hope you don’t mind the Share:

    Trust

    Oh we’ve got to trust
    one another again
    in some essentials.
    Not the narrow little
    bargaining trust
    that says: I’m for you
    if you’ll be for me. –
    But a bigger trust,
    a trust of the sun
    that does not bother
    about moth and rust,
    and we see it shining
    in one another.
    Oh don’t you trust me,
    don’t burden me
    with your life and affairs; don’t
    thrust me
    into your cares.
    But I think you may trust
    the sun in me
    that glows with just
    as much glow as you see
    in me, and no more.
    But if it warms
    your heart’s quick core
    why then trust it, it forms
    one faithfulness more.
    And be, oh be
    a sun to me,
    not a weary, insistent
    personality
    but a sun that shines
    and goes dark, but shines
    again and entwines
    with the sunshine in me
    till we both of us
    are more glorious
    and more sunny.

    D. H. Lawrence, 1885 – 1930
