The Fire This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

When the sky turns dark, and the sun runs to hide behind the Earth
The stars on my ceiling glow
I close my eyes
I am so very tired
Monsters with claws so like hands grip me till I bruise
They drag me down to the pit in Hell to watch you burn away
Your tears and wails melt into the fire
I can't speak
I can't scream
I can't save you
The fire sears my eyes and my world goes blind
Glowing stars appear before my eyes
Tears are trailing down my cheeks
I turn onto my side and plug in earphones to pump music that is harsh and real to numb me
I cannot save you
You cannot save yourself
And in my dreams, I am forced to watch you burn.
