Unbearable

Unbearable

A Poem by Brytt
"

A poem about different fires...

"

I.

The fury of envious hearts

Lies amid siblings and friends

And the want

The want

For possession

For love of things and gold

 

Betrayal

Ushering black souls

To dark holes

Driving men insane

Wanting revenge

Revenge

On rogues and thugs

And traitorous snakes of

Demon flames

 

II.

Struck between the

Shoulder blades

The blade

Blades stick out your

Back

No return to

Happiness and health

Hurt and betrayed

By those

You trusted

 

Self-inflicted heat

On the wrist

Or the leg

Or the back

Praying for death

And forgiveness

Maybe even

Revival

Like a phoenix in the

Fires

 

III.

Hot breath

Burning flesh

The back of the neck

The soft skin of

Beautiful people

Desires and want

Lusting hearts

 

Sweating brow

And warmth of

Unrefined

Passion like sparks

In the night

The only source of

Electricity

 

IV.

Honest truth of

Hot-blooded monsters

When they find

That one kindred

Diamond amid

Coals

And dust

Rust

A hint of musk

 

Someone to

Kill for

To die for

To wish for

To stay for

Fires of hatred

You want to be better

Fires of pain

Take a bullet instead

Fires of desire

Life without is death

 

A spark

A coal

A torch

A glimmer

And love the

Blaze of all that is

Good in

Humanity
