They Long to Burn

I have such fire in me.
It makes my skin tingle.
I know they can feel it
And they long to burn.
Yet they would smother it
And I would become ash.
I try to control the flames
But they are not mine
And my gentle heart is no match.
So I dance with them
And I try to use their power
But to what end?
