a fire


there is a fire

that burns all that is inessential
all that destroys life
all that kills love
shatters desire
and breaks
the fragile wings of hope

there is a fire
that spreads with wild abandon
scorching all it meets
blazing through life
like a horse running in the forest
like a storm in the desert
like a tempest in the ocean

there is a fire
a terror
a beauty
at once, arousing awe
and faith
it speaks like an inner voice
beneath the shackles of the dark world
paving the path to truth

there is a fire
that fire is me
