She was fire 

She was fire 

Anger smouldering inside her like glowing embers 
Stray sparks from which set her heart ablaze 
And they burnt a trail navigating her soul
Until they finally escape through her fiery gaze 

She was fire 

Her skin burned with simmering passion
Yet she suppressed it, her lips were sealed 
She locked inside, her flaming zeal
Her burning intensity she tried to quell
The world was not ready for the words she held

She is fire 

She let the flames consume her whole
And burn away the tainted bits of her soul
Her trial by fire ends today 
She’s stronger now in every way
And the blaze that she tried to tame in vain 
Was never really meant to be restrained 
The flames and her can never be apart 
‘Cause she was born with fire in her heart

  1. Born of fire? Are you speaking of Draupadi? Except for the ‘tainted soul’, everything else seems tailor made for her. Not ‘tainted’ bit, because I find her spotlessly pure.
    Lovely words, though.

    1. The Draupadi bit is just interpretation because I didn’t keep her in mind will writing this actually…but it seems amazing that it fits her so well! Thanks!

      1. Hmm, so whom exactly did you have in mind when you wrote it? Is it an ode to an unknown woman or any other character? I’m sure you had some definite woman before your eyes when you wrote it.
