I am the fire shining bright in your hands
the water which quenched your thirst
the earth you adore
the air you breath.

You need me.

I am the fire setting you ablaze
the water in which you drown
the earth which crushes you
the air stinging on your wounds.

**You adored me.

So many graves buried
Within

So many corpses
I hide
Like Momma Earth

i'd carry your dreams
inspire you with visions of unseen
expire in the play of your hands

if only you'd believe my existence

My soul
            burns
                         for freedom
                                               of the mind.
Just Melz Jan 2015
There's
     a
        FIRE
            in
                my
                     SOUL
                 burning
              me
          ALIVE
       from
   the
INSIDE
    out.
        No
            WATER
                or
                    wind
                 CAN
             control
         it.

I am
free flowing liquid
cold as ice
cloudy vapour..
Water exists in 3 states liquid, solid,gas
Bharti Singh Jan 2015
With
Airy freewill
And
Fiery determination
Striving for
Watery perfection
On
**Earth

gravity keeps me planted next to you
i love gravity

I'm fire
I hurt you when touched
You shouldn't be near me

I'm air
You use me but never
Need me until I'm gone

I'm water
People wish they had me
While you waste me away

I'm Earth
You walk all over me
I should just cave in

It's only natural
You really don't care at all.
For the elements challenge.  Written about a former friend.

earth* borne, on
water drifted;
fire reborn, on
air uplifted
