In Water and Fire

I won’t flow into the deep, troubled water twice.
I won’t do it again, I promise solemnly.
I regained peace of my soul, but at a price.
Everything I need is to keep balance only.

I won’t fling myself into the fire again
For my burnt heart and my dreams turning into ash.
It hurt me and caused chronic pain and destruction,
Surrounded me and overcame in a flash…

In the elements I had to find some solace.
I lost myself wholly in the fire and water,
I hardly survived the time of pain and madness,
Yet I don’t regret any day and any hour…
