Standing In Flames - Poem by Kenny Mantinelli

I stand alone in the fire,
Waiting for my legs to go ablaze;
Hoping my mind isn’t singed,
Standing there for countless days.

I wait to be saved from doom,
To be pulled out alive;
I won’t be burned completely,
My brains won’t be fried.

As the flames burn past my knees,
I can see a figure far away;
Closer and closer it appears,
Hoping I won’t have to stay.

There she is,
To douse the flames;
She gets close to me,
And it starts to rain.

She saved me from burning,
Saved me from hell;
You’ll be here for me always,
I can already tell.
