Burning Letters

Burn fire, burn brighter
Flames licking at the chains
Breaking or fortifying shackles
Decided by the intention
Of the sacrificial paper embodiment
Expulsion of demons
Combusted release of pain
A solitary action of arson
To that which bears hurt
Unburdens the soul
Lightens the load
Allowing forward flight
