The Fire

Recommended Posts

It feels so hot

Difficult to touch

Just like the pressure

It's far too much

The time draws near

To enter the fire

So much destruction

Lay in the mire

I cannot move

Overcome by fear

But I press forward

To find my dear

Beyond my death

I step into hell

The devil laughs now

And tolls his bell

I see her there

Engulfed in the flame

Forever I'm damned

To do the same

Tonight I'll dream

Of a fire so hot

I'll try to save her

Then I'll be caught

Every night

It's the same nightmare

I'm always too late

Always ensnared

Dude! That's something I kept seeing during my re-writes. Initially I was trying for something different, but the lure of passion getting some dude to forever return to a loveless relationship kept over-riding my first idea for this tune.

Thanks for the props WC guru! :bow:

:thumbsup: Good ideas, well presented.

My only thought is on something i mentioned to you before. In the first two stanzas, there are 4 "the" articles preceding significant nouns. If you replaced each of those with a creatively descriptive adjective, this piece could have even more impact.

I like the immediacy in this, Ray.
