Flames raced

Flames raced.

Feet bled through to the floor from dancing

I ran and ran and ran

Danced and danced and danced

‘Til the shadows held no more meaning.

Smoke billowed,

Twisting into sailing boats,

Raging seas,



My head filled with the latter.

And metal bars imprisoned me within my own mind.

I cried

I fell

I screamed in desperation:

“Can’t you hear me?

I know you do.

It’s burning.

Put out the fire.

Can’t you see me?

Can’t you smell the charred bodies?

Deliver me!”
