"House On Fire" by Cora Duncan

Updated: May 4, 2018

Setting me afire.

Taking my attention

from what is real.

You are my existence,

dear flame.

You take over.

You play with my heart strings.

I miss it --

having my vessel be my own.

I miss owning my own mind.

My thoughts are tainted.

My emotions altered

to your satisfaction.

I want control back.

This mind is my home,

you set my house aflame

and I am trying,

trying to put out your flames.

Move along to your next victim,

because this burning house,

is yours no longer
