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
