I wake up at random hours.
Soaked in my sweat.
The world still peacefully asleep
But I’m feverish from my sins.
I’ve always felt the burn,
But never imagined
It’d grow so fierce.
I’m burning from inside.
Searing blinding pain.
Pure hell rising under my skin.
The smell of my burnt hair.
The stench of my rotten pride in the air.
Coughing out smoke, guts & lies
I can’t stand what it tastes like.
Bloody walls & Evil stares.
It’s inferno everywhere
& I can’t see anything else.
Fuzzy mind & shaky legs
I don’t think I’d make it down the steps.
The family photos with the faces of my foes
They watch, they mock, they sneer at my woes
Melted flesh, boiling blood & pain
Carefully coursing through my veins.
Frying my memories it goes.
Relieving me of myself,
Reminding me this wasn’t just for pain
Or penance for my past.
It’s bout cleansing my soul, too
& it’s the birth of a fresh start.
