It all started with wanting to play close to the Fire without getting burnt, but one day it grew into wanting to be the Fire. I wanted to dance like it. Change shape stature and confidence right before the eyes. I wanted to bring on life and death all in one fatal swoop. But the Fire is incomplete. It was not created to burn its brightest, because right at the moment when it's glow cast a shadow on anything vicariously living through its warmth... The flame goes out. Leaving back a smoking disappearing act which took along with it the memory of the flame as the smoke becomes its reincarnation.
