Burning Bright

Imagine you were a blazing ball of fire
Burning hot, burning bright, burning everything in sight
Imagine feeling this all the time you are on tilt

Sylvia Plath put her head in the oven
Virginia Woolf drowned herself
and Hemingway shot himself

There’s no easy way to say this so I’ll not lie
I killed my fire so I’ll not die
But now I’m ready, so let it be

The fire is lit and so am I
Witness me
