An Alarming Blaze - Poem by Billy Loving

Running to and fro
Not knowing which direction to go
Confusion my plight
As I awaken in the middle of the night
Up to my feet, I jump
As I hit the floor with a smacking thump
My mind is in a frenzy
As the messages, My senses do send me
I feel the heat from the blaze
As it begins to amaze
Room filled with light
Much to my fright
Smoke begins to smother
As my face I cover
For help I cry
There must be something I can try
Sound of the alarm so fierce
As the night it does pierce
Maybe water or cover
A solution, I must discover
I grab my blanket and begin to beat
While the flames start to retreat
Faster and faster, I go
Fruit of my labor begins to show
Smaller and smaller, it begins to grow
Heat's declining flow
Finally it is out
I wait till there is no doubt
As from the room, I run
Victory, I have won
Air, I treasure
A breath brings so much pleasure
Thumping of my heart begins to slow
As to the open door, I go
Fresh air so pleasing
This event, I'm not believing
It all happens so fast
Only minutes does it last
Finally it is done
As I watch the rising of the sun
