― Charles Bukowski


The flames begin,
Licking their fiery wrath up my arms.
I let them come and bid them good morning,
A welcome distraction
From all the pain and the loss of this fine
Mourning.
The pain slips from my fingers in a broken
Way,
As rain slips from the clouds unbidden.
But the tears did not abate
This agony,
And while they, the flames of my shame and dark past,
burned
I stood there, silent
As can be
Awaiting my impending
self-
destruction.

"Isn't any good"? Girl, what's worng with you? This is outstanding. Trying to be all selfless and modest. Naw, this is poetry; the Editors thought so. I love your image too: it's as if the hands were bleeding rainbows. Though, honestly that'd be kinda cool. Awesome work, Jade; keep doing your work. :)

I seriously really like this.  Especially the play on words with "mourning".  Yeah, you're wrong :)
