Fire

And the smoke rose

Ashes flew

Fires raged in the snow

Everything burned

I liked how the world around me

smelled at that point

We ran away further into the forests

with our secrets

His ice cold hand held against my mouth

couldn’t suppress my sobs

So he pressed his lips against mine

Tears poured down

They were around determined to get us

as we hid right next to them

They look all over

Forgetting to look within themselves

They came for our lands

and our people

Our skins didn’t match

Oh what a great sin

We stood still

locked in an embrace

They shot in the air

Vowed to return

Couldn’t stand the cold

Came to douse our fire

When they left

we returned to the fire

Ashes flew

But the flames dulled down

My skin glistened and so did his eyes

Undone, undressed, I walked to burn

And he followed

A li’l warmth in the ground

an ocean of heat in the heart

We consumed each other

While snow consumed the fire

He buried his face between my legs

and I roared

I pulled his mind back to my face

I slapped him hard and caressed his face

Kill me now I pleaded

And he held my hair

he tore apart my skin

the night was coming to an end

And they’d come back in the daylight

But we will light a new fire

Only this time their ashes will fly

on my face.
