We sit together once again, my constant companion.
Your crackling cadence and elegant flame,
Bringing always a new rhythm,
Always an original dance.
Longing to get closer to your blazing lure,
Feeling your heat engulf me,
Wrapping around me like a golden cloak.
You rage and you purify,
Gifting pure light to where there was once gaping darkness,
Bringing new life to this tattered, ashen landscape within me.
You fuel me as I wander,
I breathe you, stoking your needs.
My companion, my love, my enemy.
