burn (#1 of 30)

the world burns
and sends ashes to sting my eyes
while flames lick the salt from my skin

i drink deeply
of this heat
that fills my mouth and floods my throat
forcing me to swallow or choke on its bitterness

i grieve while i weep
for lost possessions and damaged dreams
the crumbled under the assault of this blaze

my rage
comes late
long after the fire has consumed
any thing of worth i failed to save
