Bipolar Opposites

I see the fire in you

igniting your thoughts,

flickering and flaming

all of the time,

filling you with images

that you paint into words.

Your eyes are strong,

 you can stare at the light

and be filled with the fire

without getting blinded.

The fire for me,

if I look too long,

leaves me on my knees,

groping in darkness,

until like a fog, lifting,

 I can see again.
