embers

i wish you were a match stick
i struck you against a stone
you hiss, blaze and spit into dust
which rumbled in a hurricane.

if you were wood in a fireplace
i ignited you day and night
your embers crackle and sputter
scattered in the rushing winds.

when i sat  in the dark
at the bank of the river alone
you kindled into flames in bonfire
crackled to death and ruin.

you were lava of a volcano
burst, grumble and boom
you burn, moan and mumble
and crumbled to charcoal .


Visualize the person/thing you most despise. Now write a poem (Become him/her/it) About you. The poem this entity would write, in some measure, about or to…you.
