A song of fire

I haven't felt the fire lately.
More of a drowning sensation
each day I am submerging deeper within the waves
and further from a breath of air

It's hard to say if I will rise again
but
maybe I will come about full
circle, back from the watery grave

As I tunnel through the cold muddy trenches
I can't help but wonder where the flame has gone

and then I realize
I have been the one hiding it from myself all along
lying on the embers
letting it lick my sides
and all I need to do
is get out of the way
