Fire (To Linda)

I can’t extinguish the fire in my heart.
Its flames reach the deepest corners of my mind.
It burns every thought and makes me deaf and blind,
It spreads with wild intensity – it’s so smart…

I can’t bring it under control, so I start
To think over self-defense. I try to find
Some antidote to the element – still wild –
And to protect myself from my own poor heart,

But I am unsuccessful - I try in vain.
I see this fire light all my hidden dreams -
What a weird feeling! I’m afraid of that.

I’m tired of the struggle – I am in pain.
Pitch-black smoke appeared and covered sunbeams,
Burning flames overwhelm me – What a torment…
