"It ever was, and is, and shall be, ever-living Fire, in measures being kindled and in measures going out." - Heraclitus
Don't feel. Don't catch your breathe sharply when she walks by. Don't look up and away so quickly. Don't smile that secret smile when you are left alone to your thoughts. Don't let that sparkle creep into your eyes. Don't look for her every time you pass. Don't let your mind race for hours lying in bed, thinking thoughts of her.
Don't remember every second of each embrace like each second could be years. You can't live in those moments. Don't let your body feel when she kisses you. For god sake, don't let your body respond. Don't flush when you think of that last insistent kiss. Don't let the fire eat you alive when you are consumed by her touch, scent, taste.
When your pulse beats liquid under your skin to a rhythm she set, don't get swept away.
