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 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…
