Poem: Fire, Flame, and Heat

Twitching thing underneath the skin,

Drawing out the moisture,



Sucking dry,

This world’s feelings,

Bursting jelly in the eye,

It will sunbake away,

The world of yesterday,

It will make pain,

The nerves—

And leave the wounds to endlessly fester.

And spread on the kindling,

Of the dead and dying,

Of the living and the screaming,

Of the birds that once were freedom flying.

We can’t see into the end of the blaze,

For it’s all that’s left,

The world is already razed,

And we don’t need to know,

What’s beyond,

Because we’ve already burned,

Our life has been absconded,

And we are just ashes,

That used to have faces.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.” 


Let me hear your opinion.
