    Forest Fires

    To be the torch
    Which lit this fire
    Perhaps was not your intention

    To lay your balm
    Upon my soul of ash
    And breathe love back into its embers

    If but then you sought the same as me
    For a heart so desperately in need
    To prove it was not broken

    We burnt that love in flames of flesh
    And drown for a time in its searing heat
    But knew the truth of a fingers touch

    Would never reach

    The hope of larvaís burning

    So before this chill sets within my bones
    And before the last sob
    Of my tourniquet throat

    As I pace the edge of forest fires
    Where my home of coals is waiting

    There will be no more tears to fall upon this love
    No more dusts to receive the scorching marks
    No more nights of agony in pyres of blood

    No more incendiaries of amber lanterns lit

    I will turn to dark
    And melting wax
    Where the poetry of unrequited love
    Had its moment of recognition

    To be the torch
    That lit your fire
    Perhaps was not my intention

    To lay my balm
    Upon your soul of ash
    And breathe love back into its embers

    If but then you sought the same as me
    For a heart so desperately in need
    To prove it was not broken

    We saw for a time every wish could be
    In the bonfire of a memory

    We saw how love could really be

    And we new the dance was not a dream

    But between us lay the forest fires
    And its chill fingers
    Of separation

    And now to turn upon the empty night
    And look into anotherís eyes
    And try to see
    What the dreams could be
    Without love to ignite them
