    My HEART is like a un-tamed forest fire, burning out of control:
    smoking up my mind and clouding my soul
    I’m like a raging inferno, a volcano hidden deep beneath the earth
    My LOVE is like molten lava, overflowing from within...
    searing hot, burning everything it touches...
    carving a niche in the face of the planet
    My THOUGHTS erupt in my mind like spontaneous combustion
    My PASSION is white hot phosphorous, sizzling seduction, waiting to erupt
    destroying stereotypes with every poem I write..
    I may be midnights Son, but out of my darkness, comes light
    my view on life is slightly different than most...
    Because I don’t look with my eyes...... But with my heart.
    I see far past exteriors and look with my minds eye...
    into the labyrinth of humanity
    shaking off any that would bring me down..I rise
    like a drifting ash..I float above and beyond the consolidated masses
    everyone is mimicking the next person, following trends and styles
    I have a mental condition that can’t be treated and has no cure
    it’s called...Individuality
    I wish it was contagious...
    But now...the fire is dying to a small glowing ember
    barely able to see the small spark, I have no kindling to nourish the flame.
    love has escaped me like a prisoner with nothing to lose
    trust is a species long extinct..truth has started taking back burner..
    To image and politics
    self-denial is spreading worse than Aids..no one thinks anything is wrong
    commitment is made with the intent of being betrayed...
    Why turn your back on happiness when before you is nothing but emptiness?
    People need something to hope for..believe in...strive towards
    I have goals but no love..so I feel life is pointless
    but I still live...hoping to somehow make a positive impact on those around me
    My soul is in constant chaos...religion is the foundation of a good person
    I built my house on the sand, where there’s no support..
    I’m being consumed by self-criticism, I can’t do right in my eyes
    I’m trying to be a good father, but if I’m Midnights Son...
    Will my son grow up and be enveloped in darkness? God forbid.

    I seek only one....to be there when I stumble, lest I fall
    one...to touch me and say it’ll be alright
    one.....to hold me close at night and share my life
    one.....to look into my eyes and make my blood run hotter
    one.....to act as a release valve for all the fiery passion I have to share
    one....to nurse the ember back to life...so I can once more have....the fire in me.
