Take Care That You May Burn


take care my friend
that you do not burn your wick out
in this cold dead night that will not end

it will not be easy in this darkness
where this flame is set
to seek you out
to burn
and consume you
and leave you
a beat up
burnt out
shadow of yourself
with nothing
but the pitch black
to hold onto
wailing and gnashing teeth

and if it should eat you up
and leave you
a burnt out husk
and spent
having lost all purpose
and meaning
and will to stay alight
your flame lit another
and your body served as kindling
to a new wick
a new fire
a new rage
