Internal Cremation

Written by: Kate Moore

The burning, it cremates my chances

A raging fire- it jumps, it dances

Lighting new paths then turning them to ash

Sweeping up the future to mix them with the trash

Destroying my organs, ripping through their being

Tearing my faith and preventing hope from seeing

I promise one day I will put out the flame

For the ignition, I'm the only one to blame

I want to strike the match in a different place

I crave its full effects and not a mere trace

I need it, and want it to show on my face

Happiness should be here, and I'm so sick of the chase
