Playing with Fire

In the hearth of my Heart there burns a torch,
While a furnace blasts inside my brain
A stove on which my Soul is scorched-
Pyre that kindles in dying flames

No Hell is hotter than my ire-
A searing heat, charring desire
Glowing embers, the blaze I enter
(Nothing more could fuel my fire!)

    Impressive write Archaic. It seems that I have quite a lot of catching up to do on your work. My job doesn't allow me to be here if not at all these days. Have a great weekend ahead my friend.

    I had a fit of rage just yesterday, which is what inspired this piece. I'm a lunatic when I'm that angry. I'm happy to hear that you think the description of ire is clear. I appreciate the read and review :)

    Hi, Gerald; thanks for dropping by and for the read and review. I had to look up the definition for "conflagration", so thanks for teaching me a new word today; I appreciate that :)
