Pillar of Fire


for a few moments

i was a pillar of fire

i could hold my own

even if a whole city was burning


but driving home

in the car

suddenly a tidal wave

knowing for the first time

how much i love you and not


knowing in which pocket

to carry

such knowledge

none of them being

big enough.
