FIRE

FLAMES BURN EVERY INCH AROUND ME 

EVERYTHING I TOUCH TURNS BRIGHT ORANGE

I LIGHT A CIGARETTE WITH MY FINGER

INHALING EVERY BREATH OF SMOKE

THE FIRE BURNS BRIGHTLY

CONSUMING MY LIFE

MY MEMORIES

MY FUTURE

I PULL UP A CHAIR

LIGHT UP AGAIN

SIT BACK

AND WATCH IT ALL BURN TO THE GROUND

This poem is about: 
Me
