House on Fire

I couldn't look back
the sound still haunts me
and the shadows cast across the street
against the trees
made by the devil's light

I couldn't look back
the heat still scorched me
and bright sad faces
lamented the scene
made by the devil's light

I couldn't look back
sadness surrounded me
the devil burned me
as I ran from my past
and forgot to take
     my heart

    These are expressive lines, Craig; the final three are most touching. They remind me of the time when I was away from Soup for a while! // realized you're posting poems again, apart from sponsoring a new contest. // paul

    This is chilling! You must have somehow retrieved it because you are all heart my friend.

    Hi Craig, enjoyed this write, the pain and anguish stated with subtle lines indeed burned with pain and loss, nicely done.
