"..though warm as summer it was fresh as spring." (Thomas Hardy) ("Far from the Madding crowd")


Explode like fireflies in the glaring deep blue, the bloodied scarlet, the sharp-toothed silver
That gleams bright, bright, bright, as a rainbow contained in a glass bottle;
As a flame sparking, lighting, drifting into the light azure of the reigning sky:
Extinguish my fear, my pounding breaths, my authenticity.
Burst onto the white horizon like starburst squished from a crumpled packet;
Tint a milky way of my black, glittering stars, my visions, my hopes.
Release me from my inner ropes and blast me like a firework;
Watch me soar and burn, burn, burn;
Burn away the scorching hate, until only the lavender streaks in the seeds of sunflowers
are left to glimmer; as avocado firewood in the morning light.

This chronicles a rapid rise to success and power, yet feeling your real self become isolated and lost.

I love how this poem is beautiful and intriguing no matter how you look at it, but when you think about the meaning you put behind it (losing oneself to power), it takes on a new dimension. Great work.
