Burn

Burn

there is nothing i can do when my mind
is going crazy torrid
heated, burning like a hot mid summer day
there is nothing i can do when my heart
is going crazy wild
running faster than the wind could blow
a dandelion away
and it’s all because of you
of your thoughtless, unfeeling consideration
of matters around
so don’t you ever wonder baby
if one day
i become a wildfire;
unstoppable, unyeilding
bouyant, rebellious
for now i can only hope that
a few more dew drops could settle
the growing fire in my heart
i hope
i pray
before it even burn you.

    A dire warning – don’t start a fire because fire is unpredictable and can turn and burn the fire starter!! Great work to be able to fit the prompt in…
