Flickers, embers dying

Ashes rising, bark 

Crumbling to dust

At my fingertips

At the flame core

My fingers wrap 

Around the fire

I burn, I crumble,

I flicker, I send

Sparks like stars 

Dancing through pitch

Black night sky

I hold the fire

And when I burn

I scream, I fall

And when I learn

I fan the flames tall

And when I love

I bring the light, the warm

And when I shove

Away the sparks, the swarm 

They only ever grow

The unbeloved will cut me

Down at the knees

Wood to fuel the flames

The beloved will dance

In my light, in my joy

It is too much

I burn
