i witnessed a house burn to the ground once.

the wooden frame snapped under exhausting pressure

yet it seemd to be in compliance with the blaze.

nature would deliviered a calming gift.

branches from neighboring trees bowed

and offered up their condolences.

the moon blinked as if sheding a tear.

everything was sirens, water, and yelling.

people were grasping at their hearts.

they were shocked and unwaveringly quiet.

nothing moved.

soon, the embers and the smoke packed into my lungs.

my organs soon produced a fire of their own.

i could no longer withstand this internal volcano.

what engulfed a possession now crowded around my emotions.

trapped and petrified, i allowed it to take over

forever ablaze for all to see.
