Ever seem like the world is a one way street?

Each step confident,

I stride through doors

Waving as people walk past

And am offended as they look on with blank stares.

I somehow am lost in my own little fantasy

And so don’t notice the flames engulfing the world

And suffocating society.

Each shriek to me sounds as natural as a word

And I take no notice of the growing heat and increasing light.

Then,

Flame blows onto flesh

And I snap out of oblivion.

That’s when I realize what needs to be done

And see its too late.

I’ve already walked straight into hell

And it’s a one way street.
