Burning


Hear the roaring of the wind
Hear the screaming of the alarm
Jump as you burn
Scream when you see the glass break
So in a moment of weakness you sit there
Watching the embers grow into a monster all in their own
Choking in the smoky air
Hear the cries of the children weeping for their mother to come back
Watch as it crumbles the ground
Watch as your life falls to ash around your feet
Feel the heat of the flames that devour anything in its past
Cradle the youngest in your arms whispering it will be ok
In that moment you hurt
Maybe you are done
Maybe it is too much to go on.
You just want to sleep
You are slipping away
You can feel the heartbreaking truth
You are alone even being surrounded by people
Nothing will be the same
