inferno

inferno by phil burns

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

inferno

I feel that spark the first time I see her
on a dark icy cold winter’s night
the January gloom dissipates now
her smile is as bright as daylight

the flames warm my heart without warning
I am never the fall in love kind
but the look in her eyes sends me reeling
in an instant I know she’ll blow my mind

the fire she lights overwhelms me
never before has my life been so good
but I overlook one tiny factor
a furnace devours so much wood

the inferno lasts only a short time
the passion burns out in a flash
her radiance like a glorious sunset
leaves me discarded in a grate full of ash
