Passion fire

the fire of life
is the passion that keeps your soul warm
it lights your way along the path you travel,
keeps the sadness and sorrow at bay,
gives you energy to do the most meanial of tasks

staring into the flames
you see wonders flickering  within it's dept
you envision the futrure, see fantasies and faeries
your soul sighs with longing
yet you dare not get too close

you fear the fire
it has the power to bring you great pain
yet like a moth you are drawn
unable to resist the mystery
yearning for just a touch

you cannot hold a flame in your hand,
yet to lie beside it,
you feel deep in your being
the peace, the warmth, the contentment
is what your soul seeks

to dance with fire
your soul is set free
it sores and climbs to new heights
and you realize, without fire
there is only Darkness.

Welcome, Catherine! I loved the last two lines in this well-written poem.

Catherine,
     Welcome to Passions!  I really love this poem.  I have an affinity with fire  (I am a sagittarius) and I believe that the true fire of the heart's flame will never burn you  -- it is the guide to light the way!
