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.
