I spit fire

 In my mind there is a poetic spark
Illuminating words that were in the dark

When I put pen to paper it starts to blaze
My syllables are on fire as I kindle my phrase

Fiery words race through my mind
As  conflagration  of thoughts  combine

A liquid thought attempts to put out the fire
But it's too weak to extinguish my burning desire

Then like a volcano my stanza erupts
My words are red hot  please don't interrupt

I'm in rhyme mode and I cant stop
 A free verser   intrudes  but is quickly burnt up

My final  couplet flows with the lava down to the sea
Smoke rises from my pen, my poem set free

    that was funny how you burned off the free verser. But I bet you can do great free verse if you set your mind to it!! Good interpretation of the contest challenge.
