I was only kindling to reignite your heart

I danced amongst the flames
To melt away my flesh
Gave light to soul and mind
Then fed those too to the burning of our art,
See my skeleton pass under the moon
These charred dancing bones,
the ever wandering keeper of this
Fevered, blistering heart
Moving with grace and guise
Of one with nothing to hide.
Cast to a solo ritual,
I went deaf singing your name
So I’ll move in rhythm to
A cut-tongue struggle
Let the muscle memory of love
Continue this show with the ashes of myself
But dear hell, have mercy on the tempo of this beat

Give Sharkey a piece of your mind.
