I know what you are,
my hand touches you,
so cold-
my hand, it burns, melts-
aflame.

I see screaming,
melting, agonizing pain.
faces blistering.
gasping,
melting, shuddering,
engulfed.

Scalding tears,
I know Death-
silencing-
hope, life,
peace.

A dying world-
burning, it’s what you do-
unthinking,
you destroy,
leaving,
dust.

I allow it.
every breath, gives you life.
I hate you.
haunting dreams, klaxons,
in the night, terrorize, and dissolve me.
feeding you,
everyday.

Helpless,
you feed me, cloth me-
fill my tank,
give me, life.

Running, we race,
hoping, we
will not,
meet.
