That Fire

Fire licks over logs resting atop one another

Flames of navy and gold, dancing about

The scene blurs, as if a tsunami crashed over a glass wall

Overwhelmed by emotion

A cool tear leaves a trail as it runs down my face, warm from the fire

Love and fear battling about, causing such a commotion its as though two locomotives crash together

The fire outside is only a glimpse into the fire burning inside

The flames cast a light upon my eyes, a small glimmer of hope

A sign that maybe there is something out there

I hold that light in my eyes

A torch too powerful to be extinguished by the waves of tears that roll over

A torch to show everyone, I'm still burning strong
