“Tell me. What is love like?” she whispers to him under the stars. He stares off before the words fell from his lips like embers.
“Love. It’s like fire.
It’s so beautiful to look at. It is wonderful to make and have… but if you aren’t careful it, then it will burn you.
It will engulf your soul and leave nothing but dark ashes behind.
Love is both a warm fire on a cold night and a terrifying wildfire when exploring. Beautiful from afar, but a horror when too close.
I guess, simply put, love is something that with just enough distance could keep you warm and alive through the darkest winters in your life.”
His voice drifted off into the darkness and she knew he hadn’t kept enough distance before.
If you’re ever lucky enough to find a girl who’s a hopeless romantic with a dirty mind, you should hold onto that. Because she’ll be yours at two in the morning and at two in the afternoon the following day. She’ll kiss you where it hurts and until it hurts. And that’s important. Someone who not only knows how to turn you on but also knows how to treat you right is someone worth a little something… and a little more than usual.
Fires can burn themselves out eventually, but you,
You keep the window cracked and
Keep on pouring in a little bit more fuel.
Flames might be kicking at your heels
But you haven’t turned your back on me yet.
When it comes to friction, I’m an addict
And I think you might be too.
