One By One They Must Burn - Poem by Guillermo Veloso

Spinning in this demon’s cocoon
Wrapped in holy silk and set away like
Lost summer loves
Letting the worlds I knew
Crash and burn one by one
On the penitent pyre
They must burn! !
I need to set them all
Aflame so I can find a new one
In the bony ashes, somewhere
To call home in the darkness
