The Burning Song

Read it as if you rap

It’s all getting pretty crazy

It started making me dizzy

I keep hearing every then & now

I did something bad & very wrong

Even though we agreed upon

That I’ll be cool & calm

But I failed to follow

I was supposed to swallow

Irritation & frustration

Dissertation on relation

Confrontation & aggression

Patterns taking over

I’m losing the ground


Seems I’ve gone crazy

So now here I’m again

To take the blame

And a pinchful of shame

Facing the consequences

Of the sequences of mishaps

Perhaps I am the only one

Who’s all over the place

But I simply can’t stand

In one by one space

It seems I’m that crowd

Suffocated & passing out

I hear you loud & clear

You tell me I’m getting there

Where I don’t really care

Don’t even give a damn

But you don’t understand

I can’t always be tamed

Look first in the mirror

Before you even quiver

Now it’s burning high

There’s hue & cry

Emotions of rage & fear

You’re getting ready to disappear

You see me now so tall

It seems I’m changing my form

I’m this scary dragon size

Spitting fire & murder eyes

Just want you to hear me out

So I scream at you pretty loud

But the shield you’ve put on

No, you can’t hear me at all

In your eyes I’m this bloody form

But in reality I’m simply torn

You’ve been trying to tell me

I am the only one freezing

I need desperate upgrading

Coz I’m that psychopath

Losing the only true path

The person you want me to be

The new version of me

My new design won’t be mean

I might come out pretty clean

Would take the toughest hit

And some other sorts of shit

But it can’t be just me

It is the way you see

Feel the things going with me

Don’t shut the doors so rapidly

Now try to hear me out

Gonna speak a bit loud

Enough of dissing

Saying dis-dat & hissing

I might be completely wrong

But who’s always spot on

So let’s start this all over

Let’s not use no cover

You & I are this loving pair

Sometimes covered in many layers

Perhaps marinated in deep pain

But it’s just a superficial coat

We aren’t no shadow ghosts

There’s always the darker side

But look at the beautiful sight

The intense radiant light

The blue & clear sky

If I’m the one with fire

Be the water on me

If you’re that very storm

I’ll come to you with peace

Let’s be naked & true

Remove the layers & the glue

But one thing is crystal clear

If I’m this heart

Then you’ll always be the beat

So let’s start all over my dear

Coz I’m you

And you’re me

One thought on “The Burning Song

  1. With a calling of such sweet simple success who’s ever to resist such a request….the answers have always been [y]ours ..forlorn, my heart was scorned by a body who didn’t know the good lord. Filters of dreams breaching the scene making your wishes become 3-d seen. Who’s to say who’s got the right way. What have you been through up to today? Were the struggles profound had you tumbled and fumbled; almost drown? How low did your body make you go before the grand scheme of things became into one big understanding……..welcome to the dream of things. We never embrace such grace but each other in this place…….[[[hugs]]]]
