I want to speak to you like a bonfire
To simmer away the cold that sits underneath your skin
To call back the hairs that stand on end
And to sit with you- content

I want to speak to you like a bonfire
To seep into your dark places and glow with your strong temperature
To burn away lifeless bits and be your light fixture
And give a gleam of those strangers that can change into treasure

I want to speak to you like a bonfire
The pop of these embers like the embarrassed embrace flight
This circle of eyes is also for you tonight
So look into this flickering might
And transform your gaze into sight

I want to sing with you like a bonfire
Let all shadows become playful with dancing
Spark a kindness like its fancy
Look into the eyes of another high flier
And share the warmth of a billowing bonfire

— The End —
