the pyromaniac

Written by: andrew delapruch

this buildup of stress
this place of unrest inside
this eagerness to end the 
frustration
this place of darkness residing
within
this hatred of all around
this want to relieve the
sexual craving---
animal
lust
take 
control,
kerosene is so cheap
gasoline smells so 
wonderful,
the match,
the rush
the burning line along the pavement,
the rising light---
all that started from
a burning candle,
that only thing left for
one alone
on their own
in a room
where no one cares &
never had 
to begin with---
now revenge is whole
revenge is total
revenge is euphoric
revenge is sensual &
as the raging fire grows
the rising climax creeps
up,
the ecstatic nature of this complete
orgasm, unreachable by any other means
takes hold &
rocks the body into remedy,
but for one more moment,
taking away all those buildings of the world,
so simply done &
so 
perfectly
satisfying---
as the pleasure begins to ebb,
to wash through,
s/he is
convinced that this was good enough for
now.
