Fire burning bright around me

unaware, ready to die,

ready to be released

no longer waking to pain

free.

Something, somewhere

who knows where

what brings my mind to life

as the flames eat my world.

Unsteady, nausea, a scream of hopelessness

and into the rain soaked night

alive, laughing sad

at God's cruelty.

I am still here.
