we haven’t talked in a while


fire flying
back and forth
the unlikely friendship
formed through words

"I don't just talk to you because I need something"

back and forth
the fire kept flying
the words kept smiling
laughter painted the air

small things changed
the way the fire roared
dimmed to a slow burn
until only embers remained

forth left alone,
left to wonder on her own
when the fire would be back

the fire stopped flying
the embers dying
and wondering why
I wasn't enough
until I gave up...

"Hey, we haven't talked in a while"
