Burn It All Down


As I open the furnace door I feel the flame grow
I hear the crackling and a smile cracks across my face
As the fire begins to spew from the opening a sweet and twisted bliss begins to fill me
And as the flames spread to everything in sight I can't help but laugh
Soon the beauty of those flames cover everything around me
And a warmth fills my very soul as the flames grow higher
They lick my skin and begin to eat away at lies I wear
No longer do I feel confined as it all burns away
The old me peels away and disappears as the ash fills the air
No longer can I breathe as I descend the burning stairs
The faces in the pictures melt away and soon all the past burns to the ground
And as I open the front door I feel the sweet and cooling breeze rush in
As the wind breathes life into my burning redemption I feel happy once more
And as I now stand in front of the burning and crumbling house built up on the foundations of my lies I feel myself reborn
The last piece of the lies I once wore as skin peels away and I fall into laughter as my eyes gaze upon the sweet and wondrous flame engulfing everything

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
