Playing with Fire

Flickering flames dance across her face as she watches it burn

Purging her soul to the heavens above; she finds solitude in silence

Blue flames burn brightly

Figures dancing in memory

All perish in the smoke;

Unfurling like a coil held tight

The brightest blue is yet to be seen

The flames keep their secret hidden

Masking themselves in other colors

Black damask wrapped round her body

Slithers as she moves silently

Eyes focused on the flames

Her concentration is flatlined to perfection;

on a single flame
