Flame - Poem by Kasia Fedyk

What happens when there is a fire?
panic, hysteria
we want to put it out so desperately
to bring peace and calmness once again
such fear of the heat that fire brings
fire is passion
an enormous and magnificent heat that keeps us going
keeps thing alive and burning
it scares us to have to much
we bring water to keep the fire out
water becomes the wall that separates that passion from growing
why do we always do it?
why kill the fire within by bring water to kill it
Sometimes water is not needed
it kills the flames
fire is gone
how can we go on without the flame?

    Keep the flames burning high, Kasia.
    Enjoy the warmth and passion.
    Sometmes a foregn planet ecclipses the fire
    But soon it will be again in full sight

    The water of reason can kill the flame of passion
    Somehow it is a nice thing to keep them both in harmony

    This is a superb poem, Kasia

    Wow! So true. Just because it is hot and it hurts doesn't mean it's bad. I love this. Keep the truth! (Report) Reply
