In Flames

My thoughts
Dripping fire
As you fan the flames
Of hatred
My words
Smoke
Upon the wind
Lost to the night
Never though
Will I become the wildfire
You desire me to be

  2. smiles...like how you bounce fire between passion and anger...sounds like they are only solidifying that with their attitude
