Catch this Fire

I have no boundaries

I am the air
Lightly above you
I am the earth
Strong beneath your feet
I am the sparkling city that embraces the ebony of your sky
Diamond Concrete

I am a bold faced lie
I am a dose of lung deflating truth
A punch to the chest and you can still taste me on your lips
Gone like the wind through your fingertips
I am the silk in your sheets
Drenched with sweat
Between slit ice and lonely midnight hours

Catch this Fire
In your Eyes
One Time, and you will realize

I am the reason why you need to catch your breath

I am a beautiful thrill seeking siren that haunts your dreams
I am the girl next door who smiles at you through the cracks in the fence
I am not a trophy wife
I am not your pedestal warming doll
I am what I am
That is

I have no boundaries

Sleek and Dangerous
Viper, Delilah 
Va Va Va Voom

Wild and untamable as the Sea
Calm and tranquil like the leaves
Falling down in vivid red, orange and brown
Chocolate like the deepest slanted eyes
In my porcelain face 

I am a heavy hitter
Slang spittin’ Mamacita
Rough Rider
I am a delicate lotus with a dainty laugh
Double header Desert Fire
I’m not afraid to break a sweat

I am your Queen
I am your Pauper
I am your Hardcore 
Eye of the Tiger
I am your Rebel
I am your Revolution

That is Essentially
What I am
