Forgotten Language - Let's Light A Fire

The flame I once had
It’s a burning ember
A faint glow
It fades fades fades
If I walk out into the rain
I feel like I’ll be extinguished
This little light
The only light I have left
Maybe I should let it go out
But that wild woman
That wild part of soul
She soothes me
And whispers in all her hushed tones
“Let’s light a fire in your bones”
So she rubs them together
Like sticks over a fire pit
And starts the ember
That grows to a bonfire
And settles back down

To ember line my bones
