Fire and passion

You wanna see fire, you wanna see passion, I’ll unleash this beast, this monster, this dragon, I’ll show all the world, how big I can be, call me whatever, just don’t call me lee, Lee was so weak, he wasn’t that tough, lee just gave in, he’d had enough, now it’s the time, to be big and strong, to do what I like, right all the wrong, to open my eyes, to show no fear, I’m stronger now, let that be clear, it’s all in my head, it’s the black dog, nothing can cure me, well maybe a jog, maybe a swim, maybe a walk, maybe a coffee, who wants a talk, who wants a chat, maybe we’ll laugh, monsters and beasts, I was talking daft, the fire has gone, and dog has vanished, I look around, to see the damage, there’s nothing to see, there’s no one around, it’s all in my head, apart from a sound, is it a song , is it a voice, it’s getting louder now, but what is that noise, it sounds familiar, I start to grin, my dimple gets bigger, down on my chin, my eyes start to crease, my lips start to curl, I’ve just remembered, why I’m in this world, the one thing that’s true, the one thing that’s happy, a little shy voice..... calling me daddy.
