Sitting here mesmerized by the flames. My mind zones out. I feel like there's no place I have to be, no things I need to do, no demands that I must meet. It's nice. Just listening to the popping and crackling. Watching the fire dance and bounce to and fro. It thaws my ever-present chill.
Warmth, comfort, contentedness. I couldn't move if I wanted to - and I really don't want to. I snuggle closer to my love. Burrow into his chest, listen to his steady heartbeat. Our love radiates, burning even brighter. Two logs melting into oblivion, one indistinguishable from the other.
Ashes and embers, softly glowing.
