He used to make me so hot. Then things became lukewarm. We dropped to a little below room temperature.

I remember one day we were having a conversation

And there were words said that got each of us on edge.

While he managed to make it safely to secure ground

And I was timidly easing away from the cliff

He said “chill”

And I froze.

I’m insulated now when he’s around.

Because fuck him.

I’ll be my own fire.
