Black Flame

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
The awful bitterness of the heart
Welling deep within the mind
Ensnaring the soul in black flames
Loosed from the lake of fire
In which was cast the Devil himself

Boiling and frothing
The brew of old matters
Never gone, though said to be
At the brim of its pot, it be

A single feather on a pile of bricks
The last straw
All at once, the top blows
The volcano erupts

The fire splutters and spits
Its fuel almost to an end
When it’s done
Only the ashes shall remain
The last memory of the flame

Amazing! I love the message, and you are impressive with your skill in personifaction. I really like the phrase, "Ensnaring the soul in black flames." the image is astoundingly descriptive and vivid.
