This Fire by Omar Waqar

The crackle as the spark ignited flames within my soul, this fire.
The warmth it radiated killed the cold, and lit this coal, this fire.

To gaze into the light could reveal the nature of your true desire.
It burns poetry within the words of a story being told, this fire.

The glow is light projected into truth on the face of a liar.
When angry mobs surround his house, their torches burning rage, this fire.

The heat from love, that soothes the lips, that kiss the words of every *shayar.
Would be nothing but the ashes, reminiscing of this love, this fire.

* shayar (poet)
