Unquenchable by Toni Cross

From Wikipedia

 

Reckless fire ripped right through

Ripped with bloody teeth and claw

Fat on hate and vengeance bent

It tore and ravaged all it saw

Gorged with heat and drunk with soot

Shoved into its gaping maw

Psalm of A Mortal Moth… By Toni L.A. Cross

Like a moth

Drawn to the light

I find myself

Wooed by a Flame

Close and closer

I soar near

Until I catch afire

Tiny flying tinder am I

Consume the powder

Of these earthly wings

Render me dust

Til I am truly free

Ruin me for all but You and Yours…

My only fear

                            Is

                                    the night

                                                          without

                                                                                  the Son

candlelight… By Toni L.A. Cross

burning
in the darkness

flaming
in the coldest

hoping
despite the heartless

melting
even the hardest

lighting
all in the nearness

loving
even the cruelest
