A consuming force, a scared girl, is it hot in here?

She screamed as the flames licked her skin like a hungry animal 

Some people were throwing in paper

Some people were pouring on gasoline 

Others walked by holding fans and buckets of water 

Help me help me

They didn't stop, didn't acknowledge 

Why she thought, why aren't they helping

Why are they just watching me burn?

Wow, very scary poem. A poem about confusion and utter fear. I like this poem a lot. There are a few grammar errors, but I don't think the reader will be bothered by that. I would like it to be a little more clear, but you know, some poems are better unclear. These are just my opinions. I'm a horror fan and this poem does really make me excited with the suspense and the mystery. Honestly, this poem is really good. I hope to see you grow as a writer and maybe I'll find a story I like that you have made.

Thank you very much for your comment. I actually am more of a horror story writer. I have many horror stories that I am working on at the moment. I am trying to get a growing audience for my works. If you would like to find out more about my horror stories and see some sneak peeks, check out my website

Thanks again and please become a fan. The more fans I have the more content I can share.
