Write to Me A Poem

Write to me a poem
about the flame that I am
Let me glow in your joys
and smoulder in your pain
Whisper to me your words
Let them melt in my being
Give them to me in a bundle
and I'll wrap them around me
I'll rove in your verses
over moors and fords
and wait for Highwayman
as the night unfolds
Make me the solitary reaper
and I'll melodiously lament my loss
or let me be the sailor
who killed an albatross
Or may be you would let me dance
over a lovely hill
and I would smile at all who pass
- a golden daffodil
Or if you wish, just paint me
in words of pastel shades
Mix up my existence
with the traditions of your trade
Give me your imagination
and I'll give you my being
Cage me in a poem,
Love, this time, set me free
