Let me burn…

Fire me up.
Watch me set the place alight.

See me burn,
quick and fast!
Taking everything with me…

I do this till I’m tired
and I’ve burnt myself out.
Now all that is left,
is smouldering on the ground.

Yet out of my ashes I arise
a phoenix air-borne
shedding sweet tears
of rejuvenation
I cool the situation
feeding the havoc
new life
Over there
thanks to this tear
new life springs forth
a tiny green sapling
reaching to the light
this is the love
I have to give
so you choose..

For my flash fires burn hot and bright
but tomorrow it’ll be over
so let me burn
that the phoenix can take her flight.
