My Charred Edges

You lit it on fire and I wanted it to burnAutosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH

I watched as the edges went ablaze

Slowly they turned black and melted away with the wind

The tantalizing flames warming my soul

Until the smoke alarm went off

Alerting me to danger

The oxygen was cut off until it suffocated

The only hint there was even a fire…

Now just a thin trail of smoke wafting through the thick breeze
