I wish to engulf the world in flames,
let the embers scar each second in time.
For my voice to echo amongst the valleys,
the force awakening every sleeping inch—to fast forward their beginnings.
To wrap my love around those who fiend for a friend, for a lover, a home—for more time.
I am alive. I exist.
My growth runs on no scale, and for this,
for this I close my eyes
I take a deep breath
I let my being still, and my pain ascend.
