Does the world burn ? or does the world burn with you !?

Does the world burn ? or does the world burn with you !?

A Poem by TheAimlessWanderer

does the world burn or does the world burn with you 
do the skies become dark, riddled with shadow, amalgamations of the human conjuring
or has the glass become clouded , speckled and spotted
does the world burn ? or does the world burn with you ???
do the walls bleed, crying agony a symphony of sorrow ?
or does the blood dripping down from your brow accost the walls ?
does the world burn ? or does the world burn with you ??
did we all burn to ash haze and smog ?? or did you toil in your hatred setting it all ablaze ????
did they put that knife in your hand ? the blade in your gut ?
it was your life to command but you threw it all away
now your nothing but an apparition 
nothing to hold ,nowhere to stay
that day you set your life ablaze 
that mark above your heart still gnaws
a coldness is there, one that never thaws 
the gaping maw, the mark of that day
the one where you set your life ablaze
did the world burn or did the world burn with me...

This poem is filled with fire - a fire that's inside you. And I have to agree with @Sapientam with what he said that you are, undoubtedly, alive. But the fire that's inside you is not of destruction. It is a fire of life. Keep writing! And more importantly, keep living. :)

The fact that you were able to write this, so drenched with powerful emotions and dread, proves that you are certainly alive. The level of diction here is amazing and I could feel a type of fury in these words. Still, they were very beautiful and thoughtfully put. Great job!
