The Fire

The Fire of a thousand suns
Comes burning through my window
And I catch fire.
The flames are too much to handle
And engulf my body.
The darkness of the room is now alive
With the fire of my body.
The sensation is overwhelming
And all I can feel is numbness.
I am used to the pain
For this hurt is familiar
And I know it well.
My mind is overtaken by thoughts
Of sadness and sorrow
And all I want to do is repent.
My heart is still alive
Even if my mind and body seem dead.
I am of a good soul
Even though I have done awful things
And made you feel betrayed.
This fire is too much for me
And I cannot take it anymore.
My heart feels unloved
And it wants your affection
To embrace the sorrow
That overtakes it.
Soon my body will turn to ash
If the fire keeps lingering on.
Little by little
My flesh will fade away
Along with the hurt
That was never eased.
And I will be forgotten
And life will be continued living
With nothing but my spirit
That will be left to haunt the day.
But the flames will extinguish
If you give me your love
And tell me words of forgiveness.
For I will learn to be good
And you will learn to love me.
And this will ignite
Not the fire of a thousand suns
But the fire of an eternal love
Burning with life worth living.
