Fire Softly Burning. - Poem by Scott Gervaise

Crazy lover, I've fallen on my floor,

hypnotise me with your flame I adore,

4th of never, your song runs on my note,

misty mountain, you're eternal on my door,

fire singer roar, fire singer roar.

Death plays on my window, fire not alone,

crazy tomorrow's, I can't see them on my door,

on my door, I can see them in no more,

fire softly burning, fire softly burning.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is one of those recordings I spoke of in the story part of my poem 'Pucker Wind'. I'm trying to upload the file so you can hear it for yourself. On this occasion I've been battling with trying to keep it lyrically the same as the recording because the words on the recording repeat a bit too much. I'm stuck between the version I have here and the version I have recorded, I like them both but the version printed here I believe tells the story better, although I may end up changing it back to what's on the recording so as to try and gain some kind of credibility for what I'm trying to do. They are both nearly identical.

    Thank you for your feed back and I'm glad you like the poem. As far as the fairies are concerned, I truly wish I still believed in them. My life was much simpler then. I was in a silly mood when I wrote that, I've since then took it out but I'm thinking of sticking it back in lol.
