Firewood

A spark from out of nowhere
Lit up the dark around
I start to feel alive
On this open ground

Still shy and little flames
So innocent and fresh
Start climbing up my body
Dry veiny wooden flesh

Then flames are going higher
They try to reach the moon
Please come and burn with me
Or it will end too soon

Collapsed within myself
So empty I'm inside
And all that's left of me
Is nothing to abide

I calm and my reflection
Is dying in your lashes
My heart gets slowly coated
In flapping flakes of ashes

Blue dying lonely flames
Comes ever less and lower
Just to make you think
The party isn't over

You have a blast furnace of lust that seems to need stoking in this one. Good write
