  • I smell like fire.

    hair smells like fire.

    fingernails smell like fire.

    heart smells like fire.

    my body smells like fire.

    But I don't want to be anywhere else besides this body that smells like fire.

    my body holds me when I forget to hold me.

    my body carries me when I forget that it aches.

    I smell like fire.

    tears smell like fire.

    skin smells like fire.

    memory smells like fire.

    my body smells like fire.

    I have this one body, I don't want to be anywhere else in the world but in this one body.

    the body that supports my heart when it falls apart.

    the body that heals by itself after I keep ripping it apart.

    I smell like fire.

    my body is burning like fire.
