Always Burning

I'm not bleeding
but my flesh is

Scorched by the flames
in my core

It was my own head that
this tempestuous blaze

And it's my own heart that
the blistering heat

It's a fire within
that just keeps on

This burning desire
my entire being

Yet strangely, it just gets
as water is added

Success is only
by those who care so much it hurts

I am a swimmer
and my inferno will never be

Wow nice... What  I liked most was the way you contradicted yourself and the stanza form really came on well... My favourite stanza is the one preceding the last. It absolutely rings with truth.
