I can feel this power around me
I smell burning nearby
This warmth around me
jumping it’s way closer and closer.
The heat so hot and so painful and at its prime
as I watch the wax slowly trickles down till it hits the cake.
Suddenly the pain vanishes,
everything is calm and soft.
The pain was so harsh all I could feel is the emptiness
as the wax continued to roll down.
Every sensation that I had meant nothing
except for the current one, peace substituting the gaps for emptiness.
