Survival short poem

Photo by HeyDanielle

As I stood.
I noticed I was on fire.
Every inch of me consumed.
Losing oxygen I gasped.
Expanding with each sigh that escaped this happening.
I stood helpless.
Was there anything other that I could do.
Watching the flame cacade over me.
Cracking an unknown desire.
To what cost, standing there
I was no longer froze, beginning to slump in every direction.
My oxygen breathing life into each crackle.
Residing in the coal my body became.
Scattering bit by bit in the wind.
Through the skies I burned.
Me and her.
Covering me with a warmth I’ve never felt.
Sitting down running my hands through sharp stings of hair.
That’s exactly what I needed to survive.
Something new, something out of the ordinary
