Burn- an original poem

Shades of red, orange and yellow dance across the room as my eyes light up. 
You burn and flicker- your world is hot. 
Hot to the touch, can't be near you. 
Your world burns too bright, but i'm up for the fight.  
I love the high energy and excitement you exude; it rubs off on others. 
But you burn me. 
Red, orange and yellow you dance across the room. 
You keep me warm on the coldest nights- red, orange, yellow, be the light to guide me home.

Scared and Alone

She was scared. Scared to love. Scared to open herself up to the world. To share her heart with someone else. Scared of change, insecurities and disappointment. Afraid of heartbreak and loss. Afraid of being alone and unhappy. Frightened that she's not good enough, or pretty enough. Will she ever be? Will she ever love? Can she be herself around him? Afraid of trust. Scared of falling in love too fast, too hard. Scared, lost and alone in this hollow, empty world.
