Poem -

Burning

i
a beacon of hope and light 
am burning 
out

my heart
a forest of flickering flames 

my mind 
a whirlpool of confusion and doubt

i
am burning 
desire
passion
fury
love 
almost hate
but more a sadness
that is innate to the challenge of living and dying

and trying
to put out the fire 
while keeping it lit
