When you combine aluminum and rust with heat, it creates such a powerful reaction, that it can burn through steel. This is called thermite. Of course, this reaction is uncontrollable, so it burns uncontrollably, until it burns out. This poem is about old aspiration burning out, and the un-realisation of dreams. Or just the realisation that dreams aren't real. You must always have them though.

Something burns for nothing,

Just uses all it's energy,

No one yearns for something

No one pity me.

Distant eyes trapped in time,

Forgotten memories, trip divine

Souless souls all getting lost

Temporary ruse, with destiny's locks

Tied and bound and thrown away

Tripped and felled and sacrosanct

Fired and iced, and evergreen

Licked and sucked, remembering

Ravaged and pillioried and aspiration

Deafening with guilt and desperation

Retold, re-born and realise

Time is ours to never give

Time and time and time again

Life is yours to never live

Dreams are dreamt and never real

Eyes are closed to never see

Lips sealed tight and never speak

The rope held tight, descend on me

A candle doused and flickering

A moments cut, filled with promise

A lonely look of incoherence

A cup built to overflow with rust

Just remember aluminum dust

You walk in with your eternal fires

To incinerate the destiny years.
