Burn it All

Light me a fire
And let it burn
Don't let the flame die
Keep it alive
No need for barrier stones
They'll only break my bones
Just let it get out of control
Don't let the flame die
I need to see cities go down
In red, searing flames
Maybe my smile won't ever frown
If everything goes down with me
Just don't let the flame die
Hear their screams
Watch my fire burn
With more a greater rage than it seems
Cities, fall! Mountains, move! Earth, open!
Baby, don't let the flame die.
Oh, don't you wish you let the flame die?

Great poem, DinoNugget!  I think it would be a bit more visually appealing if you split it into stanzas, but it's also fine just the way it is. :)
