The Fire

The Fire

The fire inside

Sometimes strong

Sometimes weak

Keeps me warm

When life is bleak

Come wind or rain

The fire did reign

Source of light

Place of strength

I have myself to thank

One day came winter

So hatefully cold

Took my fire

For its own

Engulfed my flame

In its icy jaws

What was mine

Then became yours

The fire is gone

Damp and wet

Only ashes

Now are left

For so long

It has remained so

But now an ember

Begins to glow

Yours Truly

  1. Cool! I like the imagery, rhyme and theme – the idea of having great passion and losing it but hopeful at regaining it.

    I like this, how the fire comes back, even though it got quenched.

    I love this! Especially the ‘But now an ember beings to glow” :-) you are talented keep it up!

  4. I feel I am becoming more hopefully and positive in some areas, I am glad that this is coming across in my work. My poetry is so sub-conciously written, that sometimes I dont notice what the piece is expressing. Thank You All! :)

  6. Mmm very nice! I love how the fire flickers back at the end. Reminds me of how you can never fully stamp out nature; even if everything were wiped out (Chernobyl, for example), things have a way of soldiering on!
    Fire is such an inspiring force…I wrote a song called “The Fire” once too! Anyway, rad work :)
