Beautiful Flames

by Burning Angel   Jan 27, 2014

She holds the matches in one hand.
Broken, wounded, no longer a friend.
She lights the match and throws it to the ground.
Once the fires gone, no bodies will be found.

Piercing screams echo in the gorgeous night sky.
Flames engulf the stars, what a wonderful sight.
All the stress fades as my heart pounds happily.
Finally, the house gives in to gravity.

People start to gather, running from houses around the neighborhood.
I laugh silently, oh this is so good!!
Sirens bellow and I sink into the shadows.
Wicked laughter erupts from me as they threaten the invader with a gallow.

They'd never suspect the person it is.
The family's miracle, their youngest kid.

    Wow your good. I was hooked the whole time and the ending was completely unexpected.
    Perfect I wouldn't change a thing. The only thing I would say is I'm feening for a part two or some form of another chapter. Too good to just end here
