Flames

As my soul burnt

its flames engulfed you

keeping you safe in that quiet corner

even though people outside

yelled and screamed

but my flames burnt their hands

without touching you

 

only to see that you had all the power

to walk right through the fire

and with a gesture as simple as this

 

my flames froze

for a while

until my soul

with that last spark it had left

lifted the ice

off its chest

and set a goddamn fire

and there were flames all over again

 

all waiting to burn you

and reduce your audacity

to ashes
