I Eat Fire



I live in silence of non existence
I play music of soundlessness
I compose words with fire
With fire pen on a piece of fire.

I eat fire to burn me into ashes
I have no fear for the fire of hell
I do not have desire of heaven of God
I do not like to see the smiling face of God.

I shall not die till the doomsday
I shall set fire on the throne of God
I shall dance in front of God
I shall love Him, more than He loves me.
