Random Poem:

The Blue Flame Has Feelings Too

she screamed,
loud enough that I felt her anger,
it tingled down my spine enough
to shake into my blood,
enough to curdle my stomach
and make me see
the trivial life that stood before me.
never before
had something so metaphorical
stood in front of me
to where I could touch it,
reaching out I stopped,
looked at my hands to see
the burns of twenty years built by anger.
