Fire That Burns

This pain
explosive in intensity
if I allow it to explode
will I finally set it free?

then will I finally be
just what it is I need to be
for me?

if I die
upon the altar of its sacrifice
will I be reborn?
to the love I've always longed for

and receive
the light of understanding in return
as I melt within this fire that burns
within
