Fire - I talk to the beloved one(elements challenge)Revised

 


A
 self - consuming fire never consumes itself.

Horse manure fuels the fire a little bit longer.

Keep complaining while enjoying. . .


A flickering candle light  is an attention thief
When there is no more wax there is no fire

. . .  And  a melted wax blob turns 2 becomes a thoughtform

Yes, yes, you become ah!
And all eyes are on you!
You are whimsical, thought-provoking 

- but you just repeat what you have felt-

That means
Oh yes that means that
Until you are done re-experiencing, you

Come closer to the fire again, without
Holding on to the past, 

It's like magic
True magic, feel it
 
again 

and after that the fire is no more, you have become the ashes, if you want to rise up, come back to life  - become the fire -

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Could you suggest another, more appropriate word ?Instead of preserves?Thank you in advance.


(Update: Jim suggested a better word, fuels and I thought it was a better word too. Thank you Jim:)!
