Fire From Above - Poem by Samantha Williams

The fire was everywhere.
Its heat so extreme, its
colours so bright, and so

It called to me in a voice
Of laughter and said, 'Will
You not come in? ' So I
Said back, 'I will not do
What thee has asked of
Me.' And so I hastened,
'I must go! ' But he
Said, 'You shall never go! '

But then some man came
In and said, 'Come on! And
Take thee hand in hand! '
And so he led me from
The paths of the raging
Fire flying passed. And then
In just one flying moment,
We were out and said, 'God
Thank you.'

    haha i gotta ask; what is this about? i'm guessing fires from above could mean God, but it also sounds dangerously close to an apocalyptic event, of which the speaker is apparantly dazzled by, but ultimately turns her back on. idk it's weird, it's awesome, you gotta explain it to me. b/c i suck at poetry and'll NEVER come up with it myself.
