Unlit, unwavering I am calm

I ignite, bright, blinding

Burning it is unstable uncontrollable

hot, the flame burns

destroying everything I love,

I am the flame crying

trying to put myself out,

desperate I bleed to murder the flame,

All is gone, only ashes remain

I fall to my knees,

Unlit, withering I am nothing

I sink, lifeless, dark

gasping it is suffocating, painful

cold, the water consumes

escaping everything I destroyed,

I am the water plunging

trying to drown myself,

tired I let myself fall
