Fire On Your Finger - Poem by Tony Jolley

Fire on your finger,
Fire in your eye,
Fire in your spirit,
Fire that won’t die.

Fire in the bare bones of being,
Fire to uphold what’s right,
Fire in the heart of darkness,
Fire to fuel Love’s light.

Fire to burn but not consume,
Fire to learn and not assume,
Fire to live and give living room,
Fire to love and sing her tune.

    I like how fire begins each line, its a nice poem, maybe a little work could make it sound more sofisticated but other than that its lovely.9 (Report) Reply
