Tears of Fire

By midnights voice

Tears of Fire



I'm
Mixing alcohol
With . . .
my silver tears of fear

While . .
I am
Looking back on all the agony
of my life
Whose
Demise is . . .
now
drawing near . .



I dream of being Phoenix
With
Red plumage and desire
To be
Consumed
By the tears I have set on fire

So
let me pour another drink
And
Rake the coals of life

So I'll be
Setting my tears on fire
while waiting
on new Life

    Much more cohesive in my opinion than one or two other works of yours. Much more saddening though.

    Adele's "Set fire to the rain" seems to have a similar origin, and many thanks for the historical perspective my friend. (here's a breath mint, and cheers :) - Dan

    You're a bad seed. A scourge. Dark bringer. What a waste.

    Sometimes I get angry when I cry too about all that would've and could've happened.
