The Fire Within

The Fire Within

A Poem by A. M. Charles

This fire within me burns 
Paints my insides with ash and soot 
Makes acid of my tears 
And makes charcoal teeth chatter. 
My words are smoke 
My eyes, burning embers 
My laughter is the hissing of steam 
The crackling of burning wood. 
You started the fire 
Fanned it to blazing 
Till I breathed it 
Became it 
Loved it. 
Now can you feel the heat?

I like the imagery, you have a fierce voice when you write.
