Tear out every page
of my history

My soul is wasted –
straining for release
from all feeling

Set each page on fire

Watch them burn
individually
as I throw myself away

All that I was
is smouldering

Detached
I watch my soul
continue burning

Defeated
I’m begging you
to rescue me

As I run away
wall of fire
surrounding me

Daring you
to burn with me

Turning the light
that used to heal me
into flames
that will burn
right through
my humanity

Scorching my soul
until everything I am –
everything I was –
everything I could be –
disintegrates

Leaving behind
a trail
of blissful nothing
