Magic Carpet Ride

I, the lamp
I, the spark
I, the flame
I, the dark
I, wishes trapped within
I, the dreamer
I, the Jinn.
I, the wicked uncle
I, the doubt
I, the cavern
I, the thief with no way out.
I, the fool,
I, the wise
I, the story
Thinly disguised.
I, hate.
I, love.
I, below as
I, above
I, all things contained inside
Life, the Magic Carpet ride
