My Ash

I wrote my song on fire

For love is a savage flame

There I wrote with ire

There I wrote your name

Now with fingers burning

I pour my pain in rage

Watch grey smoke returning

To the fire-bounded page

The fire — cruel and hollow

Turns on me in a flash

Leaps at me to swallow

My anger and my ash
