Poem: The Bonfire Rages (#octoprompt)

(Not a literal bonfire. Not a good one either.)

The Bonfire Rages

the bonfire rages
the one in my heart
you don’t understand
this hurts more than helps

it rages forever
testing all actions
making me believe
even if it’s a complete lie

the bonfire…
it’s a bad love
real love heals
instead of harms

the bonfire rages
for someone i can’t
even if they look perfect
life won’t work out in the end

douse it
figure out how
the bonfire will hurt me
it will hurt everyone close
