Dancing In The Pyre - Poem by Evon Christian

The sun scorches everything
It breathes on, it breathes in,
Lingering ashes wafting in the air,
Yet I cannot find my sun-seared heart,

Unearth the ash piles where
Remnants of unresolved anger lie,
My suicide of thought and emotion,
Transformed into a figurative thing,

So I quenched my thirst on a star
And dined in the heavens,
In love without conviction or reason,
I sang heartfelt lullabies,

Who taught me how to dream,
The distant sun, the desired sun,
Forevermore I have found you,
I am uncritical and foolish,

So swaddle my smoked heart
Lest I forget my purpose,
Dancing in the pyre
I move in, I move on.

    Well, this writing is a revelation. When you start to read something, you never know where it is going to end. That is because most writer write in a straight
    line. When you encounter one that writes in a circle; it is a surprise, and a special one. I thoroughly enjoyed this and I know everyone will. What a joy!
