Inferno

your world is ablaze

 

you guarded those smoldering coals

\steaming hurts and smoking resentments\

convinced yourself

you were the watchman

lest a conflagration rise.

 

you stood in the gusts

\intrusions and degradations\

eyes shuttered

as if stinging sparks

were of no concern.

 

you felt the bonfire billow

\swallowed bile now volcanic\

while Hestia whispered

power surge sweet nothings

that brought your blood to boil.

 

you exhaled as a dragon

\savored the bite of rage\

dripped fuel from mangled fingers

threw that Molotov

just to watch it burn.
