Amber Burn (day 134)

How many lies have I built?

I’ll splinter them with these words killing me,

consume them with this fire-breath love


When I burn with this much fierce

all the colors I’ve ever seen

are shades of blue hallucination


It feels so real

when I explode like a dam, like

I thought I could sob out this love-



I know I always mix crying

with this fire that aches in my chest

and that’s why it glows like a skylight.


Put your wings up so I can share them

and give this choking flame a different voice,

from stabbing blue obsession to an amber glow


I’ll stare at the ground,

I won’t miss you with saltwater

I’ll offer up my candlelight


I’ve never wanted someone to

hurt and be happy so much.


Now I’m through with blue fire…

let the amber burn.
