The Fire

The fire caught on with me.

At first

I didn’t pay any heed

It was far away

For me to even care.

I tried ignoring the flames

As they burned every solid thing down

It spread, I did not expect this

I walked on


The fire was on my steps

It had chased me down

I could feel the scorching heat

It felt too close for comfort

Too strong to ignore.

I’d lost my way

I’d let the fire fester for too long

Set ablaze

These flames won’t die down.

You were it,

The fire that I’d tried to escape,

I am forced to make peace with it,

That I’d never escape.
