Footprints of a Wildfire

I will taunt you
So you will follow

I will caress you
'Till you are consumed

I will love you
Leaving only embers

I will die for you
Extinguishing the
Footprints of my wildfire

Maybe it's my eyes that are too blue -
like portholes of some sinking ship,
black holes that became whirlpools.
You don't dare to stare at the swirling debris, 
shrugging off the tremors and opened void- 

Darkness is a vacuum. 
You are a flicker in the footprints of a wildfire.
If we kissed, you could taste his ashes.
