Poetry: “Fire”

Yay, more poetry about one of those constants or things that all humanity has a relation with in some way.

***~***~***~***

Fire

Dancing ‘gainst the starry night
Lighting up primordial earth
It devours
Hungrily
Beasts all flee it, as they should

Mankind tamed those flickerings
Or so did we all assume
But it devours
Even us
Not a docile servant, no

Though there’s beauty to the flames
It is a true double-edged sword
Grab it carefully
Hungry flames
Lest they leap and bite you too
