In the darkness, a burning amber,
Wicked red yet bright,
Alight and luminous.

Is it wrong to let it burn?
Let the flames grow stronger?
Doesn’t it make the world so much brighter?

Such a demanding presence, so beautiful,
Dangerous, passionate, mesmerizing….
The resonate roar, in the flames.

The warmth, the love.
Ah the reflection in your eyes
of a fire so bright.

I see it. I see it.
No longer a secret hidden in the many
Folds of your heart.

Might I pray,
To let it burn,
Setting the universe alight!
