fire escape

Written by: mandy klein

I escaped the dreadful gleams of radiant light
which pierced my sight with it's blazing rays
I couldn't see anything before me, it surrounded me
I saw nothing at all

So I closed my eyes to the blasting light
Which shinned down until it hurt,my thoughts
My breath, it burned I was melting away
Never to be seen again except as a
Pile of ashes and dust

But before it had touched me completley within
I found a way out of the fire
That reached every piece of me
I've ever known, until there was almost nothing left
In a moment  I stepped through to the other side
Of the flames

Now I was on the outside looking in
And never was I going inside again
The fires that burn, Won't burn me no more
