Flickering in the corner of my eye
Sparks of red and waves of heat
Surrounded the vision of a dancing flame
Which warmed me to be near
Though who’s blaze
Behooved me to stay my distance
I could not touch for sake of it
Nor approach for her brightness
Yet in glancing I found her more-so lovely
As it seemed to fuel the pyre
Encouraging her vibrant glow
And enlivening her
With tumbling dark wisps above
I am allured by her
To receive baptismal benediction in fire
As she stirs my spirit
And engulf me with your tongue of flame
Smother away my breath
In your smoky plume
Envelop me within you
Let me learn your temperature
And as my body too ignites
I will then scorch you in kind
