Fire and gasoline

Like fire and gasoline 
There is sure to be
An explosion. 

I'm exploding 
Everyday I awake 
And see that 
My world has not change. 

Simple interaction 
Ignites a spark 
Trying to get it right 
Explodes into a ball of fire 

Setting my flesh a flame 
Like lightening 
I reach for the truth 
But it leaves me burning 
Wrangling on the ground 
For some water to cool me. 

A cape to smother the fire Bursting, hotter hotter in me 
I submit to the torture 

I have no more strength to endure Inhale
