Why Start a Fire?

Would you take the time to prepare a meal

Slave over a hot stove to cook it

Then set it nicely out on the dining room table

Just to watch it rot?


Would you adopt a defenseless animal from a shelter

Take photos of you with it

Post it to  Instagram

Just to drive it out into the wilderness and leave it?


Would you take weeks tearing down trees

Pulling them to a pit and placing them in it

Pour diesel all over them

To never strike the match?


Why then, would you wake a woman’s heart

Feed off her desire to be wanted

Play with her emotions

Just to walk away?


Why start a fire

You are not prepared

To put out?
