i gave myself to love’s fire

for most of my life
i ran from the fire
preferring to stay in the cold
unable to take the heat
and then, through grace,
a fire so bright
found me, ripe and ready,
and drew me towards it
like the moth to the flame
i gave myself to that fire
wholly and fully
without holding anything back
and that fire burned up
everything that was useless
until i stood
naked and free
and gloriously innocent

my life now is just this
beauty and joy
there are no words to describe
the blessing
of such a love
as this.
