Flame


Your flame, my flame
Who's gonna be burnt first?
Fire inside, fire outside
Who's gonna turn into ashes?

Don't get too close its heat
You could be severely hurt
Don't be too attracted its beauty
You could be eaten alive

Don't stay too near its shadow
You may not come back whole
Don't be trapped its glow
You'll only collect the wound

Your flame, my flame
Who's gonna grill who?
Blast inside, blast outside
Who'll leave trail of smoke in the end?

If you feeling cold and misery
Let it touch and warm you
If you think it is great
Go further and pump your spirit

If you want to extinguish it
Don't try to cool it down half will
If you don't know why battling it
You only get lost in its claw

Your flame, my flame
Spreading fast in your body
Flare inside, flare outside
Dancing wild in my heart

Does anger make you stronger?
In red you run with glistening sweat
Does passion fuel your power?
In high you fight with your bleeding fist

Do you fear this hot flowing tear
Will crush your hope for freedom?
Or do you grit your teeth?
And try hard to keep the light bright

Your flame, my flame
Who's gonna last longer?
Crack inside, crack outside
Leave no piece unscathed

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
