Burn Free

Updated on February 24, 2018

The anger swirling deep within the abyss of my tattered soul

Ruptures any chance I ever had of being whole

The things I've seen and heard him do, would turn your life around on you

If only you could see

If only you were me

The tide of change is coming in and filling up my soul

It's time to start the mending – it's time to plug the hole

The feelings that I've held inside won't stay there any more

They're all laid out for you to see – I'm opening that door

As the calming blue comes rushing in, you'll know what it's about

You'll see the gray and smell the stench when it comes rushing out

The death of all that I am

The carcass of of where it began

The muck and the slime that took up my time and left my world so far behind

I cannot wait 'til this transpires

For surely it will stoke the fires

The fires that long to burn free

The fires that burn inside me

And as the walls turn to cinders and fall – I will feel no pain at all

For beneath all of that darkness and ash

Dancing and laughter surely will clash

And I will finally be free

I will finally be me

      Thank you for all of your kind words on my work, Robin. Most of my poetry has never been seen by anyone, so I was very hesitant and nervous about pubishing it. You have made me feel so much better about my decision.

      Being free means everything the fire has so many elements we really need to see
