My Heart's Fire

I've sipped many a spirit
   that sent me here and there,
      but none that took me where
         and quite like God's Spirit does.
Tasty were the quick nips,
   libations to calm the beast,
      peace promised at the least,
         but each faded as if never was.
When the Holy Spirit first
   poured ever so deep into me,
      filling me up to my brim for free,
           my heart's fire would never leave.
