I need fire


I need fire in my soul burning bright to show the way
I need fire in my heart like a beacon shining night and day
Kindled desire licking as the tide on a flat sandy shore
I need to breath, I want to breath
A consuming fire
I need to get out into the clear air, push my way through the thick smoke
Find a way past the heavy chocking ash, resist the charm of the flames
A covenant, a blanket shield
Acrid soft angles dance across the ceiling, feeling for space, looking for a way out
To bring us out, I need to be free
A flash light, a Fire fighter, a God of love
A saviour who drenches us and washes away the chard dead wood
Cleaning and saving our rotten sinful souls
Leaving a radiant light in our hearts, given to all of us
I need fire
I need fire

I like the phrase 'I need fire'. It's one a poet can get hold of and run with it. Be careful of spelling errors. There were several. I got a little confused between the needing of the fire and the escaping from the fire. You might want to work on clarifying that in polishing this poem. Keep working on this. It's worth it!

I like this approach to the topic. I like the style of writing! I experienced the feeling of the message. Good poetry!
