A Ghost In The Smoke
As the flames bring a path of destruction,
Rambunctious flickering flames
pierce thick walls
of black asphyxiating smoldering smoke,
a ghostly hero,
a seemingly selfless entity
wanders through danger
searching for life
close to the brink of death,
the flailing final breaths from victims.
Hard helmets atop this fire fighting angel cloaked in flame retardant armour,
fighting a raged devil of flesh eating fire.
The fall of a structure,
the crumbling ceiling
that helps hold up these burning walls
that so violently fall at the beckoned call of this growing burning demon that so beautifully dances in death.
