Wild like fire

Wild like fire

A Poem by Tiny Drop

I can't breathe - you near me.
I can't feel - you freeze me.
I can't see - you blind me.
I can't hear - you enrage me.
I can't taste - you bring me pain.

I'm in a cage.
The empty lazy days pass me by.
There is laughter outside my dark imprisonment.
There are painful cries and moans at night.
You come hidden by darkness.
Your iciness always a memento...
Of what has been had before and now bleeds like the sky.

You're here and you're not.
You breathe and then you do not.
You feel me and then you do not.
You see me and then you do not.
You hear me and then you do not.
I taste you and you're gone.

Like a wildfire which finally burned out.

How you weave words with such a painful longing, words that seem filled with a sense of a soul's drowning in suffering sighs. This all consuming fire comes and cannot be stilled. Maravilhoso.
