Fire

0202a32ad75544f3d1ab491d43d33863

On this narrow path, wide dreams left their traces
On this shallow smile, an insane affection carved a crescent
On this coloured sun, days of struggle painted their triumph
On these frantic hopes, an amnesiac heart outlined a new draft
On this peaceful night, nostalgia and forgiveness made a pact.

In these doubtful eyes, the games of the past put a wary guardian
In this inner garden with puddles and flowers, the seeds of my patience sprouted
In this quiet mind, reconciliation delved deeper for a spot
In this empty time, a tenacious warfare conquered rays of light
In this stirring laughter, I dared to free all the fire kept within.
