Chapter 19
Destructively Beautiful

A birthing spark begins a vigorous life of an ember
The inhaling red speck brightens, growing with each breath
Its adolescent smirk generates burning heat as it exhibits its colourful coat; Admired by fixated spectators
Flickering licking lips gorge on the air in an orange haze, dancing with the incoming wind
With its maturing beating blue pulsating core, its beauty is a beguiling memorisation

Clinging to its un-regarded victims; Soulful absorption fuels its bottomless contagious consumption to satisfy its greed
Gluttonous desire spreads, ingesting of all whom are touched till all is ash beneath the asphyxiated choking flame
A failing final smoking gasp extinguishes all colour, fading back into abyss

Only to be remembered as Destructively Beautiful
