I Will Laugh For You by Allin KHG

you watch the flames flicker
back and forth in the night air
trying to avoid the smoke
too far from the fire
to feel its warmth
slowly moving closer
afraid of it spreading
of getting burned again
changing position with the wind
taking in the smell
squinting at the light
hands covering your scars
trying not to think about it
too worried not to
close your eyes
take a step back
you open you eyes
a quite voice in your head
asking the man in the moon
for the nerve to decide
step forward toward the heat
or call it and leave
he knows you and says nothing
you sit and watch the fire
transfixed by the flames
a warm breeze blows past
and you cant help but laugh
