Flames

Light up the water

Set fire to the rain

Some of us don’t get a chance

Some of us succumb to the pain


Not wondering why

Never wondering how

Acid tears we cry

Burn a scar, cheek down;


Laugh it off, fool the pain

It’s a part of the past

Live every day to the fullest

Every day as your last


Death is instantaneous

Takes the blink of an eye

No more second chances

Watch your spirit fly-


Plummet hard to the ground

Shatter to pieces

Flames lick at the crumbs

Shadows fall indecisive;


Flirting with death

Flip the world upside down

Smoke through your last breath

And let your heart drown.   

The End
