It burned at first

pain, unfathomable

could almost feel

my skin melting

dripping away from the bone.

I watched helplessly

as my dreams turned to

blackened ash

wisping at my feet.

And it blew away

in the slightest breeze

like it’d been nothing at all.



I can’t get warm

without the blue licks

of flame that engulf my soul

you burnt me alive

in a white hot inferno


dust to dust.


from whence I came

I shall ever remain
