The fire inside dwells within,
I've never felt such a burning intent.
I feel as though the flesh were flame,
It grows every second with my forceful rage.
I have yet to discover how to return such fire to sanity,
This burning inside scorching more than any earthly fire could ever be.
I know the day will come,
When I take control of the burning and be done.

At the time i was extrememly jealous of my girlfriends new guy. I thought I was going to explode with rage, but instead I wrote this poem.
