Fire and Flame

a Poem by Raquel Swann

I’m fire and flame

burning down bridges

around the island I’ve built

I destroy for survival

not pleasure

driven by fear

I want you out

all of you.

Then I won’t have to feel

I won’t have to lose

I will not have to worry

The last bridge is ablaze

Go now before it’s too late!

Out!
