The Cleansing

Intoxicated by the flames
that cleansed my soul

Destroying everything
‘bad’ within my bowl
of deceit and lies and
downright deception
Fire burning bright, lights
up my recollection

of the time when darkness
ruled my world
Controlled by the powers
of evil unfurled

I gaze into the flames
not wanting to see
the things that I have done
the ‘bad’ side of me

This elemental being
dancing so bright
flickering and licking
at my wounds this night

Cracking over seeds
of discontent
Now this slate’s wiped clean
by this ele-ment

I stand before the fire
feel the heat, feel the light
That all-consuming power
that cleansed my soul
this night.
