Still Burning

Behind the blanket of smog
You let it burn.
That curtain of yours, I still wonder
Whether to hold the fire
Or turn it to embers!

But it grew wild
In darkness,
Locked me in my chamber
Ran me out of breath

I cried,
Pleaded,
Clamored for
A fist of fresh air,
A bit of sunshine 
The end of silence.

And then 
Helplessly I broke open a spire
A tie, an amour, an entanglement 
That silently
Swells in ocean and blossoms on pyre!
