I Am Fire

I am fire, twisting, burning, bright.

A small spark, crackling flame, the roiling inferno.

The light in the dark, and the bringer of darkness.

 

I light your way. I keep you warm. I turn your world into ash.

I am ruthless, punishing. Burning souls in the darkest of hells.

I am the merciful end, the cleansing flame. Purifier of the dead.

 

I sputter, the cherry embers grow dark and the light is gone.

Charred residue, cold gray ash, that’s all that’s left…

But there! a single glowing spark. Igniting, rising, burning.

 

I am fire…
