Reignite

Standard

On occasion

I feel I am but nothing.

The smallest slice of an ember;

Emitting no heat nor flame.

Those days I foster love.

Regenerating what is left of me,

Knowing that the tiniest ember

Still has potential to flame once again

Given oxygen,

I breathe.

Reignite;

I burn.

Burn

Standard

I burn the roof of my mouth

On my croissant or my coffee each morning.

I wake up so hungry, I cannot wait for them to cool down after I warm them up.

I do it every time and I know better.

Over and over,

Again and again scalding myself.

My sleepy head and ravenous appetite

Over rule

Common sense.
