My spirit is one with yours; since
the burning times and zealot’s reign.
We have walked, talked, made love,
made war, lived and died side by side.
I have burned at the stake with you,
and with rising smoke and ashes our
souls flew together into the night sky;
trapped there within a lighted star.
Now, we’re finally being reunited
after what has seemed an eternity,
but I find myself there once again,
thrown onto the fiery pyre of wood,
and slowly burned into oblivion.
You haven’t the strength to fight
my overly pious tormentors, or
put out the flames about me; so
once again I burn, my essence rises,
a wisp of love for you … I burn.
