April 23, 2010 - Feeding On The Fire


 Feeding On The Fire

What feeds the fire that fans the flame
Inside this heart of mine
Ignites my soul and makes it breathe
Until surrender is divine

The thirst the need intense desire
To feel the fire burn
Fuels the flame that burns inside
For that of which I yearn

To live to learn to not be burned
Of which I know not how
Feeding on the flickering fire of love
The heart should not allow

To freeze the pain the heart does feel
A task that must be learned
To save a heart that feeds the fire
From the fiery burn
