Dreams of Fire

 

As swift as shadows flight from breaking light
Gracefully plunging through open sky
Day dreaming of things I wish I could make right

Dream turns to fantasy turns to pain
Sparking inside, a raging flame
That cannot be quenched or slain

The fire dances and burns
Across my heart, head and hands
Consuming me despite my twists and turns

I’m now the flame, my own beautiful pyre
Stripped away fear replaced it with desire
Now only this screaming, hurtling, ball of fire

I light the night like the burning sun
Waking the monster I’m to become
I strike the beast, we melt into one

The beast, the fire such a raging flame
Howls not of fear but anger and pain
Beast, fire and I now one and the same
