Heat

A Poem

Photo by Vladimir Fedotov on Unsplash

I am a woman on fire.
Tongues of heat licking and flicking across my body.
Flame burning inside me, coating my organs
With molten, smouldering core
Of lava.

I am melting.
My body drips hot liquid, which sizzles atop my burning skin.
Soaks through strappy cotton dresses, sodden underwear
I want to strip it all away
