The Fire

via Daily Prompt: Flames

Did you ever just sit and stare at a fire? The intense heat and reddish yellow hues it emits create something warm but yet mysterious.  It’s actually hypnotizing. You just seem to stare into those flames as they ravage whatever is in their path. Like a lion eating its prey.

How can something that is suppose to keep you warm or heat your meal be so cruel?  So intense that you wished for salvation. So ravishing and uncontrollable at times.

 I suppose it’s like everything else in life, it has good and bad qualities. As long as it’s contained and controlled properly it’s good but if it gets out of control its an exhausting battle.
