This is an interpretation of a text I originally wrote in swedish, called "Svart Eld"

(Original available here:

Black Fire

Clear for those who watch in earnest.

Waves of heat,
strikes against those who feel.

If they would see the core,
could they decipher the dance of the flames?

The fire consumes me.
I'm drowning in the shadow of my doubts.

As usual a great structered write.
I have written a piece called Fire but it is totally different
Yours is sad and comes from the heart, like all of your stuff

I like the way you boldly splash insight and description up against the wall. The images are clear and powerful.
Nicely presented.
