Burn.

September 18, 2009
Life is short...
And fades away...
Into dull and smokey shades of gray...

So burn!
Burn!
Fill the sky with your brilliance!
Burn until it spreads
Into the hearts of those around you
And they are warmed.
Burn!
Burn until you can't take the pain
As lukewarm sentiments melt away
Burn until it kills you.

Five stars for sure!
