Firecracker

She’s my firecracker

An incendiary set to erupt

Riding in on jets of rocket fuel

Armed to the teeth with heavy missiles

An unstoppable force of nature

This girl is a hand grenade

Love, Falter, Rise

My most expressive moments

Are lived in my greatest struggles

Is that not beautiful?

*

Can I not take comfort

In the moments as they pass

Encapsulated in pain?

*

It is a good fight

No, it is not a noble brawl

But rather a battle for my spoils

Shall I not collect them

When my opponent

Has fallen again?

*

Withered

Scraped clean

By sharp boulders

Flesh is exposed anew

Only to heal as scars

Strong as iron

*

A new man

Born out of fire

Powerful

*

Love

Falter

Rise
