“A Necessary Burn”

Nothing more than a man
a human in the world
full of humanity trying to survive.

Yet my heart shines bright
from the soulless dark
dark of a man on fire so intense.

Will I survive tomorrow's heat
or will I burn up
upon re-entry into a faithless world.

Just a man, a creature of habit
dying from birth
as we are all unfortunately and slowly.

Love like a flower grows
yet it dies
when shattered hearts are often.

It's seed certainly lies beneath
the cold hearted earth
bursting forth like a exploding supernova,

leading this man on fire
to a hopeful
existence in the world of man.

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
