A dispassionate flair discolors my disposition

like recalcitrant embers, I smolder and half-sizzle
gone from me, my engrossing desire,
the hell-bent fire, consuming me

I, now humbly aspire, merely to breathe
let my heart continue to beat, a reluctant retreat
and forget the daunting feat
of wanting you, to want me too
