Healthy Distance

My type of love is intense

It’s a veld fire ready to consume

All aspects of a lovers life

But he doesnt permit it

He understands healthy distance

He knows about playing with fire

I suppose he’s been taught

Or been burnt a few times

Especially the bushfire type

The type that can flicker one moment

And in a blink turn to blaze

He knows how to tame it

Just enough fuel to keep it going

He stands at a healthy distance

Just enough to feel the fires warmth.
