Erythema Solare

In the beginning

Fire burning on my back

My cape aflame

My skin curled back

Agony of heat torment

I taste the flare

In any event

Wisen me of time to take

Damn my pride

And my mistake

Pseudo for society

Make my bed

Sleep silently

Once again; inferno rise

I shred my shroud

And compromise
