my poem titled “Put the Fire out”

life, love, poem, poetry, Uncategorized, writing

Bloody teardrops

Fall onto the fire

Trying to extinguish the flames,

But they sizzle out.

Because shedding blood alone

Can’t put the fire out.

But if we bleed together,

We can stop the blaze.

We can inhale the smoke

And disappear into the night,

Like so many shadows.

-Collins
