Set Fire to Your Dreams

Set fire to your dreams-

Set fire to each one

Pile, on the blaze,

every star you ever wished on,

every mirage on the horizon,

every man or woman or child

you ever loved,

every flag you worshipped,

every god you died for-

set fire to each one;

Pile on the fuel,

build it up high!

Let the flames roar,

let them melt, and burn,

and destroy

every spark

of hope

or desire

buried in the vast universe

of your heart-

dig every last atom out

and feed the flame,

let it burn higher,

let it consume

like a

voracious beast

everything you ever

thought

you knew,

everything

you ever thought

you

loved,

everything you ever thought

you were-

let it burn-

let it burn-

let it burn-

set fire to your dreams!

Lay them to waste-

and in that that desert of ashes,

in that grey nothing,

in that absolute,

utter,

complete,

eternal,

abyss-

hold your breath;

and in the silence

of that flame-ravaged

annihilation

where once

lay

your heart,

watch-

hold your breath-

and in that godforsaken

nothingness,

watch what is born.

  1. The words flow out, like a stream and you’ve to run after the words because they’re slipping out. Beautiful thought. Everything after nothingness. Beautiful.
