Feed The Flames

Fire rages churning in the barrel

Flames fighting for fuel

Gulping great quantities of oxygen

Racing to its own depletion

Not knowing the intensity

Will soon burn out

Dying down to red hot embers

Cooled to ash if not kindled

Fed from a source outside the flame

If you are the fuel

I will be the oxygen that feeds the flames

Burning white hot

That when there is no more to give

Our embers may out last the oxygen that feeds us
