she needs love like wildfire.
like forever fire. until every last
southern sun sets. till the stars burn out.
and to know her heart is finally safe…
– butterflies rising
‘she needs love like wildfire. like forever fire.’ is a poem by butterflies rising that is an excerpt from her prose piece ‘ways to break this southern girl’s heart’. the full prose piece is an incredibly personal poem, and butterflies rising felt like this section of the piece is a poem on its own that others would connect and relate to, so she published it as its own piece. it speaks to the way that she believes that passionate love and independent love can coexist and both are the kind of love that she wants to know.
