I feel you
Deep within me
Your flame barely seen
Yet burning incessantly

Endless ache
Covering the pain
Never effective
Shouting at me in whispers

Tears well
Shoulders drop
Giving up
Giving in

Surrendering to the depths
Never to return
Embraced by darkness
Dissolving to nothingness

Flames erupt
Whirlwind spins
From earthly ashes
A tear is shed

Fiery ache to energy
Airy wind to breath
Ashes to body
Watery tears to blood

Alchemical life
Transmutation into being
Freedom from constraints
Wings move in love
