FIRE BURNED by Damore Alli

She laid down in the wild out

Dirt

In a bed of mud

Where rain poured its venomlfire3

with vengeful coy

But she- she, fire

Undying, un- giving

Burnt with unmatched valour

Setting water aflame

She hurt, broke

But with style and passion

She fought to ashes

Till the rains washed her off

And they mourned,

Oh the skies mourned

Carrying her musk through

So everyone knew

That she, fire, had burnt to earth

But no one saw it

No one saw the gleaming eyes

Of the flames that licked ice

Off the rain drops as she burned

That she- she rejoiced

With each ash she shed

That she had finally been noticed

For the first time, since.
