The flame flickers beneath my skin

Warming my hands and my heart alike

As I stare into the woods

I hear your call

So far away

I know it means you are near

The further you sound

The closer you are

The blood pumping through my body

Screams at me to run

I take a deep breath

Knowing it’s too late

Far too late
