The entire world around me is burning
And I am burning with it.
Just imagine this-
All of us caught up in flames.
From a distance far away,
We are the sun we need.
A sapphire heat that is never ending
Because we are never ending
In spirit and blood-
The rivulets that flow and flow and flow some more.
But for tonight, maybe the only heat that can be felt
Is the tip of a smoke
That I finish with a friend.
One night, two night
Every couple fortnights.

It is so cold outside
It is so cold within.
