Fire Starter Poem by keith hendrickson

Fire Starter

Rating: 4.8

forever young in my heart and always numb in my brain
im always wearing youth on my sleeve
hoping 1 day i can get this numbness and strain to leave
as never ending passion burns throughout my soul
the darkness above begins to take its toll
never ending rains
loneliness and pain
start to seap into my veins
my blood turns black and so with it my heart
and now its too late in the game to head back to start
the fire is dim
darkness settles within
this fire can not be extinguised without a fight/
this happiness and desire will not be relinquised so i reach for the light
im tired of acting shameless
and walking aimless through the night
do i have what it takes for this fire to re-ignite? ? ? ? ?

Youth is always wasted on the young. It's best to always be young at heart. Good job!

It's like a man is trying to relive his glory days as a child because death or a cancer has been creeping upon making him feel trapped. So he starts doing things shamelessly feeling there's no other way to live. Compelling.
