Indescribable

I have delved into the very heart where darkness simmers, love light glimmers then explodes in current apocalypse, an inferno eclipse of blind pyromania. Words, mere kindling and kerosene, fuse wire and gasoline, erupting, igniting screaming aflame, roaring and screaming your name, your name.
