The flames lick at the sky.
Like they are praying
To their satanic god.
God, I hope not…

I see the dreams
Bringing her home.
Watching him study.
In the ashes…

I see the hope
Meeting him.
Falling in love.
The red hot love.
Taken in a red hot flame…

I only see the pain.
Broken hearts.
Broken bones.
Broken sprit.
In the hell of fire…

All the hopes,
All the dreams,
Up in the flames,
Of the white picket fence.

Sir, I admit your general rule
That every poet is a fool;
But you yourself may serve to show it
That every fool is not a poet.
~ Alexander Pope

You did well on this poem. It's an interesting story that's very ambiguious, and it keeps me on edge... I really want to figure this out.
