Internal Cremation

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
