Let me burn

The heat pulsing beneath my skin

Flames licking against my body

Let me burn

Passion, desire, lust

Filling all the mazes of my mind

Let me burn

An inferno raging within

A phoenix spreading her wings

Let me burn

Releasing it with a banshee’s cry

My soul sings

Let me burn

Love my fire

Feed my inferno

Embrace my phoenix

And let me burn for you


I am a witchy gal who collects books, loves nature, and listens to all manner of music.
My writing comes to me in bursts and waves, so the things I write can be quite random.
I love putting my words out into the world.
