Moth to the Flame

Like a moth

To the flame

My unguarded mind

Is drawn

To the thoughts

I know will serve

Only to burn

But I suffer

The flame


The burning

For the biggest mistake

I could make

Would be to shy

Away from the fire

Away from the light

And live a life

In darkness

Response to the Word of the Day Challenge prompt: mistake
