(my Flame) Burning From The Inside Out - Poem by Scarlet .....

My flame from
within

My flame of
darkness

Flame of
anger
this flame is
my beast

It rages within me
higher and higher
it burns

I really need
to put this
flame out
for it has
already almost
taken my life

how do you
put a flame
out that is receiving
constant fuel

I know the flame
will never totally
be put out

Can I not
get it to
burn lower
for it is
so high now

That it is
once again
close to that
point of
serious harm

I need to be able
to lower it
to a level where
it causes no
harm

I need to have it
under total
control
for in this
manner
I can so
survive

I learn to
control
this flame

I learn to
control
the fuel

I need to use fuel
in a positive way
before it reaches the
flame

I need to be able
to release the fuel
without it touching
the flame

I so say

    Very fine poem! I wonder if it wouldn't be even better if you shorten it just a bit? I think... and it' s only my opinion! ... that the last two stanzas could be cut completely. But maybe you had a strong reason for putting them there! (Report)Reply

    Wonderfully expressed feelings of the pent up soul. Anger, avarice, attachment, lust and pride are the chif sources of pain. It is the ego of the body (individual ego) that keeps on fueling them. What is needed is controlling it through self knowledge to have peace.

    You have said everything about self in simple poetic words a phrases. You seem to have attained the poetic heights in this poem.

    I so get this poem! ! ! Very nice.

    You know what firefighters to manage flames that are out of control don't you? ? ?

    They start a backfire - a separate good fire - that burns the same fuel - but controls the danger of the original....

    Hmmmmmmmmm

    Some people have a flame that can only be put out by the coldness of the world, but u have a flame that is strong and all u have 2 do is control it.


    But u wont have trouble with doing that.

    Good write. Peace, Alan

    Well, the least that could be done is to lit your flame into an ember for it to constantly have light to sustain life. Control it in the manner that it can not turn off or blaze into flame, either way could cause you pain. Keep it up my friend, do not die to cut the pain! . Great write, top mark. (Report)Reply
