flames and tears

Days when the mind and body
just cannot take anymore
And you have filled yourself
with too much

You burst into flames
It will eat you up
Sometimes wishing it will
remove itself from you

These days you douse yourself
in water to let it die
But the flames never stop
It continues to live in you

You wait for the day
When you break from yourself
And hope that your tears
will extinguish the fire
