I walked through
to reach you,
the flames still
flaring on my skin
as we touched,
but instead of putting
you poured gasoline
over my body
and threw a lighter
at my feet.
My gait through
but I’m on my way
trail of sulfur.

Pennsylvania surrounded by books (a little bit of everything) and the echoes of
music (mostly hard rock/heavy metal and blues). His horror/dark fantasy poetry
collection, Dark Oceans of Divinity, was recently published by
Cyberwit.net. Facebook: Christopher Hivner - Author, Twitter: @Your_screams
