Flames - Poem by Katusiime Jeresi

I loved fire, flame by flame
and I was consumed till all that was left was my name
I loved fire, flame by flame
maybe I was insane or simply loved the way it burnt away my shame
I loved fire and was burnt by each flame
till I was choking on humility
and my heart didnt beat the same
I still love fire and the beauty in each flame
for when I thought it had taken me to Hades
it just proved to be part of your game.
I love fire and how it licks away my impurities
and brings out the hidden glow
I love fire and how my stubborn heart it tames.
