I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy ever minute of it."

My heart is on fire
My soul is alight
My conscience is burning
My brain is out of site
My lips are blazing
My eyes are aflame
My skin is simmering
I cannot be tamed
Try as you might to calm me down
Say that you need me
Plead on the ground
But whatever you do there's one thing you can't say
Don't ever claim that I'll need you someday

I'm giving this four stars because it seems your forcing the rhyme instead of letting it come naturally. I like the premise of the poem. Good job!

1 timothy 4:12 Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

I love the imagery in this. I understand the emotion in this. Very well written.

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.

This is fantastic! I really like the rhyme and how your poem flows so well, and the last line is delivered so amazingly - it's like a whack where it hurts the most.

"Un ange frappe a ma porte
Est-ce que je le laisse entrer
Ce n'est pas toujours ma faute
Si les choses sont cassées
Le diable frappe a ma porte
Il demande a me parler
Il y a en moi toujours l'autre
Attiré par le danger"
