Champagne and Fire

While you are pouring sweet champagne

toasting all that is good in your universe

I am pouring gasoline, striking a match

willing to burn down my insignificant world

While you are shining , a star in the sky

I am darkened with  cinders and soot

You are the diamond I am the dust

Unlike you,  the victor,  I will not rise

like a phoenix from my ashes
