Random Poem:

I said to the snow storm: I'm on fire
lefttheparty

The snow was falling all night and all that I could think of was
 1
how this reminds me of
 2
nothing
 3
 
 
the blank
 4
white
 5
stretching over everything.
 6
like a canvas
 7
streched over blank space
 8
to create more blank
 9
 
 
space
 10
 
 
 
 
I'm on fire
 11
I told the snow:
 12
I'm on fire
 13
and it laughed in my
 14
face
 15
and said back : that's how you want it
 16
that's what you choose
 17
don't complain to me
 18
it's not my fault.
 19
and I stood there
 20
burning
 21
and said:
 22
I want: a
 23
change.
 24
 
 
But the snow kept coming stretching across the
 25
black top of the pavement
 26
outside my window.
 27
I'm protected from the
 28
cold
 29
in my house but still
 30
:
 31
I want to go
 32
outside
 33
to leave a mark on the white
 34
canvas
 35
covering everything
 36
 
 
but as soon as I open the door
 37
the snow melts
 38
from the heat coming off my
 39
body
 40
as the fire
 41
turns me
 42
into ash
 43
 
 
the blank canvas :
 44
pure white
 45
and the storm laughed
 46
and walked away.
