I Live Within





I live within the soft living glow
Of a fire that consumes the you I know.
Images, spoken words, all we did and said
The soft tingle of your touch, your aura.
The tender connection we once had.

I wander through a field of flames so far beyond sad.
Willfully enveloped, resigned, as living incendiary to survive.
Blistering, burning so hot, yet leaving me numb and cold.
An internal fire of time's sad entropy, memory's demise,
Spawned, shrouded by daily patterns of duty old.

Absent for months, your voice merely makes my knees fold.
Not long ago even a violin, a tenor voice, or piano did more.
Then you I heard, felt, and saw through lingering tears.
Now I touch the notes in my mind, hold my breath and endure,
As each wave of fire crests my heart and with a sigh clears.

A path of friendship now diverts from burning frontiers?
What stalls fires that render love to be less than each day before?
Asymmetric already is all emotion and energy, shards all we are left.
Vision of a face that recedes in my mind, no will left in my heart.
What need for one numbed by fire, that rages all edges by theft?

Even now your memories still a burn through me do cleft.
Resigned to death in numbing fire otherwise they too are cast.
Having burnt through fuel stored in better days ages ago,
The glow of love fades as with the passing of time's arrow.
Only your hot breath in my lungs will reverse decent from limbo.
