Halo of Fire

Dearest love, I knew you were special when your hair caught on fire. The glow of the flames around your once so beautiful and happy face, your eyes the eyes of a wild stranger, mouth moving and making sounds didn’t make sense to me. I was not afraid; the smell of burning didn’t disgust me. When I put out the fire by roughly patting your head with a towel, you crumbled to the floor and I was there to take your hand and wipe your hot tears away. God was shaking and grumbling in Spanish about how you would never listen, you would be the death of him. “Don’t worry, angel,” I said, “I still love you.”
