I Feel a Fire Burning


I feel a fire burning

In my heart.

My mind tells me,

“It’s okay.”

“Just don’t think.”

But isn’t that what

I’m good at?

“Starve.”

Can I starve this fire away?

“Don’t feel.”

But how can you not feel a fire

Too hot

Too large

Too ravenous

To put out?

I’ve run out of water.

There’s no turning back.

This fire will continue to grow.

I feel a fire burning

In my heart.

And it’s not okay.
