Fire | A Poem by Travis Dean

Fire like a thousand sunsets
A tidal wave of shades
Dancing as a living being
Dieting as it fades
Oxygen ignited
Breath of life that saves
Spreading like a sickness
Ashes to the graves
Funny as it consumes
Just how humans behave
Flames go out in time
Humans cannot be saved
