Smoke On The Horizon ©©

I watch from a distance
As fires burn in the sky
The moon is bright
As distant screams stab the night

I want to light up a smoke
But the rain keeps putting it out
As do the tears
That smother the fires

The bitter liquid from my flask
Intoxicates my mind
While putrid water
Scorches the throat of innocence

Today I sit free in my world
Free to speak my mind
When some find freedom in their minds
Not their hearts

I watch from a distance
As the world burns
I watch
As the flames get closer
