For It Was Your Fire – Author Joanna Maharis


My soul is painted

crimson by your fire

creeping along an isolated

highway rocking me

to sleep in the visage

of the moon’s dance.

There is a blemish

forming inside your soul.

Its rage towers

over me when I’m lost

to red skies

burning up my heart.

My chariot awaits

to carry me away

from ashes and dust

your corpse has become.

For it was your fire

leading you down which holds you.

For it is now up to God

to carry your withered

spirit up into the clouds

and through His gates

in Heaven.
