A dying flame

She had the heart of a warrior;
she was fierce and stubborn,
not even the angels could tame her.
She was unique, but lonely,
and the thorns that grow
inside her lungs,
ripped her chest away until there was nothing,
but a dying flame.

Immortal

At the beginning, it was the hunger,
horrifying, never ending
You stood by the moon’s side,
covered in darkness, with nothing more,
but a pure symphony of heartbeats,
thrown somewhere between reality and dreams

Your eyes were a black sea of wonders,
so deep it turned the unbending stones into salt
as the waves touched the shore
and the alluring sky was split in two
by the sun in flames
You wore the smile of a warrior
and I knew that you will live forever

I was aware that I could not reach your hand,
but a glimpse of your faith
has shattered the poisonous thorns
wrapped around my heart
and taught me to be brave

Your soul has now become a shelter
for the immortal lives you are bound to
and monuments of silence
are giving you the eternity to build
a long lasting empire.
