FLAME

Enflame me with your passion
Cool me in your unique fashion
Let’s ride the crest of love tide high
Forgetting present with nary a sigh!!!
 
Hide me in your warming embrace
Away from reality’s fall from grace
My world is no longer a happy place
Let’s go find comfort’s soothing trace!!

Light me up like a church wish candle
Send forth our prayers to the Lord aerial
Seek blessings to fill up our mantle
Rescue us from us as life turns brutal

Reality has now worn a death mask
To regain sanity is a Herculean task
In past smugness we can no longer bask
Seeking order from chaos is all we ask!!

There are flames and there are flames
One flame’s forked tongue burns all in path
One flame managed and banked gives warmth
Let’s enflame n enlighten on basis- warpath

I am tired of searing my soul with harsh reality
Hearing unpalatable truths sounding like a banshee
Sing me an anthem of peace, bonhomie, live n let live
We have a short time on earth to make our marks n give

Enflame me with your passion
Cool me in your unique fashion
Let’s ride the crest of love tide high
Forgetting present with nary a sigh!!!

Seared singed and hurt, I cower in fear
Life’s gone awry and totally out of gear
Let’s find an even keel to drive and steer
Stamping out all flames that burn and sear

Hide me in your warming embrace
Away from reality’s fall from grace
My world is no longer a happy place
Let’s go find comfort’s soothing trace!!

It does no harm just once in a while to acknowledge that the whole country
 isn’t in flames, that there are people in the country besides politicians,
entertainers, and criminals. – Charles Kuralt

Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only
 light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals,
 deep burning, unquenchable.- Henry Ward Beecher (1813 – 1887)

Wit is brushwood; judgment timber; the one gives the greatest flame, and the other
 yields the most durable heat; and both meeting make the best fire. – Overlung
Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians.
 It is to unsettle their minds, widen their horizons, inflame their intellects, teach
 them to think straight, if possible.- Robert M. Hutchins

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your
 life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility
 into flames of achievement. – Foster C. McClellan
A great flame follows a little spark.
Dante Alighieri (1265 – 1321), The Divine Comedy

It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents–except at occasional
 intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets
 rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps
 that struggled against the darkness.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1803 – 1873), Paul Clifford (1830)
 
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to
 themselves, “You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just
 not close enough to get the job done.”
George Carlin (1937 – 2008)
