~Black Flame~ Poem by E Nigma

Born into this world alone
Waiting for the end
Looking for a place to rest your head

You try to find the meaning in searching
For a friend
Someone who understands like you do

Never good enough to fit in
But standing out you're far to pretty
To special for them to understand

So when you needed a hand
They handed you a beating
For your beauty

Their laughter brought more tears
And they burned into a fire
It spread fueled by your fears
And destruction became your desire

As I sit desiring you
Your broken heart to mend the pieces
You're scared of this love
And it's not without reason

Yet, your heart cries for it
And the closer I get your flame
Reminds me you're not ready

The irony of your black flame is...
As it destroys and protects
The air I breathe only feeds it in

The end
