Suddenly Light

Suddenly Light

Lights had gone out
once again

It was dark long enough
for me to forget warmth
The idea of brightness
was nowhere to be seen
Until today
I held a random match
I found
Instinctively, I scraped 
its head across a surface
Suddenly light!
I could begin
to remember

Fire and Metal

Fire and Metal 

There may be danger
involving fire and metal.
He’s looking down, now—
from the sky.

He laughed at me.
There was no way 
I could ride away.
The only thing I could do
was sit and grab the handles.

Then, I saw a road—

on a trip I was taking.
Wind blew and found me
Unafraid. 

Burning Leaf

Burning Leaf

All the confusing
Things that are things,
Missing excitement,
Given requirements that you state.

Like fire, clove, and cinnamon,
On a nice autumn day,
With a chill breeze on my bare knees,
This feeling is here to stay.

Burning fire,
Burning piece of me,
Burning to the ground.

All the excitement, all the rage.
Ignites all of the decay.
Am I okay?
I ask today.
The answer is in the flames.

Burning leaf.
Burning inside me, burning through today.
A piece of me is burning in there,
Hot and on display.

A leaf in flames,
Wanders away.
Carries on,
Blowing along its way.

Like fire, clove, and cinnamon,
On a nice autumn day,
With a chill breeze on my bare knees,
This feeling is here to stay.
