Someone set the world on fire

There is panic on the pavement

Accusations flood the streets

The dance of give and take

my life for yours, my life or yours

Chaos blasts across the oceans

and there’s a fissure in the dark

where my heart picks up the race

and my blood is giddy

my soul mad with glee

and you’re breaking my reality

disturbing my sanity with a swizzle stick

And we’re waltzing as the world breaks apart

or the universe invades and space crowds out the sound

of the agonized atmosphere that stretched and broke

in time to the crashing cymbals of my hearts chambers

But my feet are tangled in the stars

as we’ve laughed it all away.

This time that matters

and the universe spitters and sputters

slipping through the cracks.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
