Matthew G.

Answer

I don't understand. It doesn't make sense.
Why is this found to be such a distress?
The rage must be rising, clouding your head
Like smoke from a fire, caused by a spark.
Passion fills the mind with corrupted pictures,
Teeming and bubbling out of its brim.
Fire is strong, but this strength consumes it,
Leaving charred ashes of sense and regret.
