there is a fire
i think it fell from heaven
a star fallen from its place
it landed on my doorstep one day
and just lay there
brilliant and gleaming
calling me by my name
and as i went out to meet it
an inferno rose up
consuming everything
feeding on everything
leaving nothing behind
in the fire i recognised something
but i’m not sure what it was
my heart was filled with a thousand beating wings
fighting to take flight
to soar high into the heavens
to swoop and dive
to ride on the edges of the wind
exploring all the infinite possibilities
the fire has burned down now
i forget that it is there
the embers smouldering under a dark layer of ash
i stand on them and they sear into my soul
and i feel alive
but i am not
i am not
there is a fire
