Let Me Burn

Like a chemical fire

I blaze wild and unrestrained

All who come near me feel the heat

If you touch me expect pain

To hold me is a curse

And those that try to smother me

Only make it worse

Please spare me the hurt

Of seeing you burnt

I have so little control

Trust in these words

That when the conflagration is done

And the coals, once a smoldering menace

Are as cold and dark as the ocean depths

From my kingdom of ash I’ll rise

So much like a phoenix of myth

As I soar above the clouds

I’ll look down to see the damage I’ve done

And by my tears I’ll fix what I wrought

But please don’t make me cry for you

Please just let me burn
