bonfires of the heart

my passion has died for you once again
as my love grows for another
my flame bends in his favour
and I am lit once more
just an ember about to catch light when your spark caught my sights
he was there before and here now and this fire is so warm
it doesn't go out at night or when I need it most.
it the continuum you see, it was never meant for you and me
you were only ever the exciting detour on the long journey to myself
the rides looked cool but far too scary to actually go on
I know now why you wouldn't offer you hand
and I am so glad I never reached for it further
its been nice knowing you but I'm off on a new adventure
let the bonfire begin!
