Verse 32:  Wildfire

Verse 32: Wildfire

A Chapter by Glen Yumang Manese



There are times when I look at you; I’d rather not.

Forsake of letting down my armor and fall from grace. 

Those temptations finding their pollution would do no harm. 

Intermingle with artificial interceptors trying to invade my mind. 

Confusion of all thought that satisfaction is a one-night stand. 

Against the core values built not of wood.

Set an ensuing wildfire blazing out of control. 

Even water cannot extinguish the sins of silence. 

In reflecting is the truth so visible and viable.

Smooth surface of concrete shows the lies in full view.

Cracks run like veins in the skin.

Etch with the bad blood of influence.

Reckon no favorable return.

Slowly smolder levels of foundation. 

Construction of brick laid standing.

Disease has killed all doubt within. 

Taking is a value for the price tag. 

Wrath wishes to finish with vengeance. 

Smoke screen fills lungs in guilt.

Burns flesh of the weak. 

In shedding, are no tears?

Inflict lacerations for the meek. 

All are actions of daunted lust. 

Plea with conception all is not lost. 

Patience was duly mistaken for lack of judgment.

Not even the purification of blue can mend. 

Justification to know the ashes are a constant reminder. 

In this battle does not rest with flames ignited.

Test soul to purge with each blink of the eyelids. 

There is no measure in pursuit to be together.

No sirens are willing to negate such fixation. 

Inconceivable are the musical ballads.

Focus blinded at times to abstraction. 

Disposition is controlling the length. 

Furthermore, width expands tolerance.

Bind is the rings of protection. 

Within chain mail holds this heart.

Depart not to the claim of indigenous.

Kneel down knighted with chivalry.

Only dedicate to life’s end with you.
