burnt alive

and you lay there still,
somewhere between ashes and flame
lighting the trenches,
just as i begin to love darkness


your ardent heat melts my indifference
shredding me to sweats
filling the pool with guilt
and defiance.


you grow, as i snub
and disappear when i recall
you are traced when i'm lost
and i lose you when i'm found.


you're the lamp
and the djinn
while i play the servant and the master
alternatively.
