the flames lick

up your past

up your future

up your ass.

The night sky sparks

shredded remains of ambitions which have met their fate

long before their expiry date.

Don’t tell me they’ll rest in peace cuz

I’m holding the torch so I know all they’ll do is

rest in pieces.

    1. Thank you. Your appreciation of my poems is enough for me to continue on this journey. Even though you’re “gonna leave anyway”, don’t leave without changing the world for the better, one artwork at a time.
