Fourth Place Poem

Devil's Kiss of Fire

You think you know me,

I have power in my eyes

And destruction running through my blood.

I'm full of hatred and regret.

Rejecting affection in my wicked ways.

Lightning and thunder is my game

Heartache and suffering is my name

Fire over earthen waters is what I present to you.

Vanishing without one care in the land.

My presence will always leave a scar in your heart.
