Embers and Ashes

What I feel for you
Comes to life
In the embers
And ashes
Of a heart broken too many

A cycle of life and death
Of rebirth and destiny
Of wolves and sun.

It is stoked by the fire in
My dreams,
And fed with the cold
Desire of fate.

I see in you a kindred
A twin flame
Who understands the
Darkness in me.

You’ve come into my
Icy domain,
And brought with you
A fire that melts away
My pain.

My past does not frighten
It emboldens you to show me
What love truly is.

A love without consequence
Or shame.
A love without the mortal
Wounds of sorrow.

What I feel for you
Has no other name but love.

Like butterflies are butterflies
And bones are bones.

You have redefined the word
For me,
You have made me believe
In its meaning again.
You have made me believe
In the stars and their fiery

So when I breathe, my
Final breath,
Take my place on
Charon’s side
And meet you on the River
I’ll still have the taste of
Your warm kiss on my

Because everything burns
But not everything dies,
Especially not my love for you.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
