Fire Within Her


She had a fire within her

that had reignited

once again

it was dim and lost

for awhile

her spirit enlivened

she was a dancer

seductive and proud

the power of a tiger

that screamed out loud

her spirit soared through

her dance

and spoke many things

it held many stories

of the past

and the future

among others

the fire glared

in her eyes

and glistened in her smile

she could capture

the very essence

of the tiger

and run with him

for miles

Quite an enjoyable piece - very easy to follow and full of passion with a hint of mystery intertwined - it leaves the reader with a feeling that they want to learn more about this tiger-dancer and how she's lived her life with the essence of something wild within her soul.

A most passionate and creative poem.
