Eyes draw in to the flicker of flame
Dancing lashes light the night
Imagination moves in varying shades
White hot blue into rippling red orange,
I gaze lost in the moment of a fire unleashed
As a song plays in my memory
And a young man singing in lace white finery
Staring into my eyes
Setting the soul alive.
The time to hesitate is through
Gotta live each moment before it’s gone,
Flickering out like a candle extinguished
Smoke tendrils rise
Then fall into the air seeping slowly away,
And I stand before the inferno
As the cool moon stands watch above me
The sound of silence only broken
By the Mojo in my mind.
Lighting the fire of passion of life
Dancing in the pale moonlight
Turning in to see the sun
Rising to take me higher.
