She lit a fire...

She lit a fire
Melting color down her spine
Falling wax releasing light

She lit a fire
Soft rouge took to her cheekbones
Her smile rose to the mountain top
Quietly yelling out in angry joy
She proclaimed her land
A settler of the exploring types

Last I saw her was in your tone
She left and found no place to go
She left and I have let her go

She lit a fire
There was no choice
All paths lead to one

Skin shattered and crumbled clay
Dripping away flying into smoke
She unveiled the cloak

She lit a fire
But where could that girl have gone?
