This IS for you

picture credit: http://www.deviantart.com/art/fire-143188760

I've lived in dark alleys, barely missing the reaper,
surged with elation that had no gatekeeper,
...as I've shed dark tears of sorrow, in a future with no light,
so I've flown with heavens creatures through a calming blue twilight...
I have hidden my desires in the hope the grief will wane,
as I stagger with surprise at the demons I have slain.
The end I cannot you foretell, as no-one whosoever,
feast on what’s before you, you know, nothing lasts forever,
I’m not making any promises, and ask of you the same,
just revel in this dance with me before it dies, this flame.

  5. ...we're only human!! Sometimes up, sometimes down....and we revel or slide downhill.

    on top, and before the flame dies...DANCE!!
