More Than This

I am fire.
Stay away from the flames;
They'll destroy you.
A time bomb at my fingertips.
But don't look away
From the blaze.
Blind...blind.
You don't know
What's good for me,
But don't let go.
Ha!
How do I explain it?
I am more than...
This.
I'm flawed...
Beautiful pain,
Only human.
Every day I get
Older.
Closer to what
I'm meant to be.
What I'm meant
To do.
I can hear my muse
Calling.
I'm coming...
I'm coming.
Heart
Beat
Racing;
Blood
Boiling;
Smiles
Forming;
Chains
Breaking;
I'm here,
Feet stomping,
Sprinting,
Running,
Faster and faster,
Flying.
Power.
Inferno.
I'll make them bow,
One by one...
Eyes like burning suns;
Rising,
Rising,
Cold metal tastes skin;
Salt,
Iron,
A chemical reaction.
Love,
Regret,
Pain,
Will burn.
Burn.
Make room for me.
My power,
My blaze,
My fury.
Overwhelmingly alive.
Shut your eyes.
The end.
