It’s a gift
to love so fiercely
and a curse

All she did
like all that she knew
was to love

Love she did
like it was her last
day on earth

Many came
to be loved by her
they all went

She burned bright
too bright for them who
knew the sun

Bit by bit
she felt pushed away
by her love

She burned in
her fire until she
became it

What remain
are the embers that
once were her
