Fire



Immortal flames,
Omnipotent power,
I yearn for your touch.
I submit myself to you,
A supplicant at your feet.
Occupy me,
Engorge my core,
Discharge your searing pain within me,
Consuming my all,
Kindling new life.

  4. Powerful. I have always loved the paradox of being consumed into new life.

    1. Susan, it is a paradox isn't it? I wouldn't fancy this type of renewal myself.
