A beautiful burning of colours,
Flickering as the sun.

A warmth,
Hidden from the winter,

A warmth,
That sparks a life.

The fire within.

The flames that burn,
Waiting for it's long awaited prey.

It starts with the coaxing,
The false promise of safety.

Then comes the agony,
The reality,
Your surrender.

Surrender as sweet pain,
Sweet redemption are given.

For your flames of sorrow,
Your flames of regret,
Have engulfed all that is revealed.

A fire that Burns.

Your emotions,

The fuels that cause it to grow,
A fire,
The fire to end all
