It's like putting

my hand on a stove.

At first, it doesn't hurt

at all.

But then,

it starts to warm up,

and it starts to tingle,

and it starts to burn.

I keep my hand

on, through the pain,

but at some point,

I have to let go,

unless I want to get

seriously hurt.

I don't like

getting hurt.

And right now,

my hand is still raw

from heat,

and I have to

resist

the urge to put

my hand back on the

burner.
