Wildfire Heart

The sweetest of hopes, the bitter goodbye.

Match stuck, the stake is lit,

Time to watch the burning witch.

No doubt you’ll be unable to tear your eyes away.

The greatest show on earth.

And a show is what I’ll put on.

I have no doubt you’ll be watching through your

Fingers, expecting me to burn.

But I am the daughter of Leo,

And you cannot burn a girl

Who has been blessed with

A wild fire heart.
