Orange, yellow, red, and gray
The ashes and sparks of fiery flames,
Float over the ground.
The fire is uncontrolled.

The scent is strong,
Powerful and mighty,
It brings water to the eyes.
Will it ever die down?

The wood crackles,
And the sight,
So breathtaking.

The fire,
Is like a drug.
Once you start to stare,
No telling what you will say or do.

Say hello,
To the fire,
From your worst nightmares.

Origianally written because i love the smell of fire. When im around a fire, my eyes glaze over all i can do is stare. I say things to who ever is with me, stuff that i keep burried under all the drama. Then i just breathe in the fire and feel so relaxed and peaceful. Anyways, as i was writing, i couldnt get my feelings across so i turned it around so it would be a horrible evil fore...the lake of fire called Hell.
