Some Fires Never Die

She turns the music up louder and louder
Bliss
Serenity is overrated.
Calm is impossible
When you’re in chaos
Did you know,
When you sink down below the surface,
You can hear your heartbeat?

Her pen is racing along the paper
Faces are coming to life
Creator, are you happy now?
Genius, are you a sinner?
Why is this so wonderful?
When you’ve sunk to the darkest depths
And wandered through the maze of your soul,
You know damn well what your heartbeat sounds like

She dances around the fire
Fun
Sanity is a foreign concept
Long forgotten
The music drowned it all out
It was overrated anyway
As the drum sounds, the beat matches
The tumultuous rhythm of her heart

Some fires never die

I rarely comment but this piece was particularly interesting to me. I loved the "wandered through the maze of your soul" line. Beautiful!
