“Into Ashes”

itching anger licks at tender scars
ravaged body
savaged soul
flesh made raw by inferno’s hunger
weeping tears of mourning
lost hopes dance out of reach
stolen dreams
wishes robbed
desires annihilated as searing heat
consumes passion
ruins delight
extinguishes life

Poetic Bloomings this week asked us to explore ‘burning passion’ .. and so I have. Probably not from the angle most people would, but I never do anything the normal way.
