Life is short...
And fades away...
Into dull and smokey shades of gray...

So burn!
Fill the sky with your brilliance!
Burn until it spreads
Into the hearts of those around you
And they are warmed.
Burn until you can't take the pain
As lukewarm sentiments melt away
Burn until it kills you.

That was great! I totally related because I kind of make it a personal goal to make an impression. I loved the writing!

Five stars for sure!
