A raging cold blaze surrounds me
This flame that started so small now out of control
I fear may soon destroy all that I love
Yet it is you who I love most that fans it
Why do you continue to feed it?
Is it your intention to let it consume all I hold dear?
Do you not realize you, who I cherish are in the gravest of danger?
I try to calm myself to no avail
I clutch and claw my way to some semblance of sanity
Some shred of warmth
Though the more I struggle the worse it gets
Slowly the realization washes over me as a cascade over a pebble
That the only way to save you from me
Is to release it into the night
Ablaze I run
I run through the darkness, a beacon
Though unknown is whatever is drawn to me
I run bellowing
Releasing the angst and rage that has been building, I run
I run with the hope that once this flame has ebbed
I will finally find rest as a new person
Free of the logs of despair and flame of cold rage
Free of the monster within that birthed it
And free to move on
