if people were elements,
then we are ice and fire.
your touch is frost upon my burning skin,
my breath melts your frozen heart.
your kiss is cool against my lips,
and my heat warms you all the way down
to the tips of your toes.
and although we could complement each other,
beckon the other away from the end of polarity
to come and meet in the middle,
too much of one
will eliminate the other.
— and i’d never forgive myself if i caused your destruction, c.j.n.
