“Who then devised the torment? Love.” (Burnin’ For You)

Who then devised the torment? Love.
Love is the unfamiliar Name
Behind the hands that wove
The intolerable shirt of flame
Which human power cannot remove.
We only live, only suspire
Consumed by either fire or fire.

–T. S. Eliot, Little Gidding

I’ve seen suns that were freezing
And lives that were through
But I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ for you

–Blue Öyster Cult, Burnin’ For You
