Afire and Aflame

Their beginnings and ends were blurred.

Passion often erased their borders,
while equally hot distrust and fury
erected fences and laid landmines in a flash.

To envious observers there was something
illegally intense to this match of fire and flame.

– James Steerforth

Written with blurred, illegal and match from 3WW #88.
