Of Rebirth

Before the blaze I stand
Baptized in darkness
Blackened by memories
Broken by omission

The mask shatters
Its shards lie scattered
Lie twinkling with deception
Piercing the flesh that feels no more

Shadows behind be
Twilight ahead
The blaze before me
A heart lying dead

Hot, but warmth long gone
Consuming itself like all fire does
I stand motionless
Wondering where I should land

Time, flesh, breath
All so unimportant
As this spirit files free
And lands within the flame

Only it can survive the inferno
Relive this again and again
Only it can make sense of the yearnings
That run so amok in my head

Turning away
I melt into shadows
I’m Small pieces of myself
The rest… I have given away
