I dance through the crimson fire,
The flames licking my body, 
Gyrating to a rhythmless dissonance,
The horizon is ablaze, 
And a mere touch becomes a conflagration.

Through the clouds, 
Terra firma and the,
Limitless expanse of unsuspecting,
Tranquil water,
Your breath fanning my flames, 
I’m trapped in my own inferno. 

Everything I see is charred,
And the flames slowly die down,
An assemblage of thoughts flood my quietude,
 Leaving me with a question- 

Did my soul ignite the fire? 

Or was my soul ignited by it?

Nonetheless, a pyrrhic victory.

Burn is a poem written by the wonderful poet Sukanya Rajan. The first of many from this wonderful writer, Sukanya draws her inspiration from life events as well as the world around her. She believes in living life to its fullest while remaining true to what makes us human.

This post was brought to you by Lore Publication's new series 'Poetry Monday' where we publish poems from talented writers across the world, giving them a platform to share their work. Acting as a community, Lore's founder believes that words and art are what separate us from the animals. He wants to honour that by sharing the best poetry, an art form of the word, with the world.

Every Monday, Lore will publish a free poem to read. Poems will be published on a range of topics from love poetry, dark poetry, gothic poetry, inspirational poems, motivational poems and more. Be sure to check back next Monday for a new poem.
