Daily Prompt: Smoke

via Daily Prompt: Smoke

This is dedicated to all the incredible human beings who I’ve met along the way. The beautiful souls who have taken up the challenge, set out to slay the dragons and build a beautiful life. I salute you all!

am i smoking

i’m burning on the inside, hot coals

my soul lies in ash

but there’s no smoke

no one sees the charred edges, they hide deep

they’re inside of me in the tinder place

melting, my heart is melting

rubber into flames

i wish for a spark to ignite

to penetrate the outside

i wish for grey smoke to rush around my frame

so they would know

i want them to know about the fire

but the flames will scare them away

no one will remain

the stench of singed emotions

will make them leave

and i will be all alone again

with the scorched bits

and no flame
