Ready To Burn


When I saw her standing there I fell
And when she moved, the blood rushed to my head
It didn’t take any time for me to know, what she tried to show my soul
The desire in those eyes that lit the air afire
With every gulp inhaled, it burned
It burned with a want inside that ached to be released
With cries, my lungs expelled, shot out like dragons breath
Flames as hot as the sun and red, red the colour of hell
Her stride, hypnotized
Her curves, swerved
She stroked the strings attached to my heart
It pulled to the left and followed every step
Leading to the dark where light is consumed
My eyes, these eyes were lost, now found in the lair of doom, presumed
She hummed a tune, with a pied pipers tool
It floated in my head and swirled around like smoke
Over a boiling cauldron of spells that calls out my name and says…
Welcome to Death
My eyes, these eyes that shed no tears, started to cry
A lifetime of guesses, over, would it be, heaven or hell
No flip of a coin, no lottery to play
The end is here, now, today
Compelled to turn around and face the life left behind
My eyes, these eyes closed for the very last time
With a final breath, words slowly slurred…
Thank you, for all the hard lessons learned
Now am ready to take on the devil and all he can burn
