Fire

     by Emily Calvo

You are coals:

solid, ready to ignite.

 

I am flame.

Grounded in your shadows

I rise with your spark.

I dance in your glowing heat.

 

Together,

We tame darkness.

Together,

We reach for the sky.

Together,

We warm others with our roaring fire.

 

To others,

I am the one who shines.

They do not know

that should you drown

in life’s torrents

or I suffocate for want of air,

we both fade.

 

Do I consume you? No!

It is your nature to burn,

mine to light.

So after my energy has waned,

after my dance is done,

you’ll lie, white-tinged,

still

warm

                        embers winking in the darkness.
