Burning all the flower fields
cut the weeds and keep the hills
ashes are such lovely things
the cinder looks like heart’s yearnings
everything burnt and black
char the world so it won’t come back
all the flames will die real soon
as the air gets eaten too
cut the weeds but keep the ground
look at all we can do without
burn the flowers and dry the lakes
the oceans gone the world replaced
drink the ashes take them in
the darkest remnants of what has been


Within the pain

Burning in the cold rain
drinking in the sludge
I’ve taken all the pills now
and broken all my bones
burning in the cold night
rain falling from the floods
burning all my skin off
drowning me in mud
burning from the fire
the fire in cold rain
the droplets are all glowing
orange within the pain

Walk on fire

Burning brilliance
the bush on fire
the voice that booms
destroys my ire
broken dreams
unheard screams
the child dies
the mother feeds
burning darkness
blinding light
eyes go inward
close up tight
burn the skin
from bones of white
drink the marrow
and start to drive
drive through fire
burning roses
no one cries here
we’re all fine
burning bushes
the time it’s taken
off the witch
burning bushes
blinding light
the booming voice
brings sight to life

The world is on fire

The world is on fire
we do not really learn
we set it aflame
just to watch it burn
we dance on the ashes
bathe in the soot
when our lungs are scared
it’s too late to look
we are all blind
all blind willingly
the world is on fire
not sure what we see
the flames are if truth
the world won’t get better
as we dance in the ashes
all bathing together

The answer

Silence is the answer
the key to open lips
driven crazy by the rapture
crazy in the pits
broken bones don’t mend here
nothing ever ends
the problem isn’t fun dear
it’s loneliness and edge
edges of a razor
rusted over with the dead
blood that’s dried from sunlight
eyes that bleed out red
silence is the answer
to burning in the dark
a fire in the sky
guiding demons to the arc.
