There is only one thing a flame of fire cannot touch.
You may imagine that the fire is drowning you,
Just like a gust of wind may drown out noise
But the fire has not so much as swept your imagination for it is boundless
Inside, outside and within.
Imagination is dancing unchoreographed dances,
Making you wild with fear of this fire.
There is only one way out.
