Up In Smoke (Love Poem/Song)

UP IN SMOKE


I've never seen such vibrant colors
I've never seen a soul dance quite like hers
When she smiles I run for cover
Lest I ignite and go up in smoke

LET THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD GO UP IN SMOKE!
LET THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD GO UP IN SMOKE!

The kinda girl who begs suspicion
No fucking way she's one of us
When she moves the world moves with her
She'll start a revolution with a single look

She's wild fire and caution to the wind
I'd be a liar if I said I wasn't scared
To share the Earth with a fucking goddess
Whose eyes burn empires to dust

Words fly from her lips like embers
Catching fire with hunger down so deep
Even if she hides her flames inside her
She'll still warm the world with inner heat

The way she moves is incendiary
A stick of dynamite in every dance
None could blot out the light within her
She'll blow you up with a single glance

LET THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD GO UP IN SMOKE
LET THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD GO UP IN SMOKE

Bends time when she steps in the room
As everyone's eyes turn to greet her
Glowing like a radioactive plume
She has become the destroyer of worlds

What I wouldn't give to just get closer
Crash through the atmosphere and right to the crust
Stand in the core of the Earth beside her
Feel the molten fire of her touch

She's leaving blazes in the wake behind her
Hellfire wishes it was half as hot as her
She'll wake the thunder dormant deep inside you
Then send you crashing back down to Earth

See starfire seeping from each pore
She's glowing like a galaxy beyond
A mystery how she's only human
With how she looks so celestial

LET THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD GO UP IN SMOKE!
LET THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD GO UP IN SMOKE

Rewind the Universe to ignition
I bet she's the one who sparked it all
I'd set the cycle of stars in motion
And build constellations just for her

Author's Notes

I figured I'd post something a little different to break the monotony since all of my latest hubs have been about atheism and religion.

I wrote this last month but then lost the file and had to recreate it from memory and in the final result ended up quite different from the original. The poem is about a girl who is so beautiful and who so many people want to pursue that she has untold power. The idea is that we often place impossible expectations of perfection upon people we have crushes on. As the poem goes on it escalates from her being merely special or being capable of destroying earthly empires to being the cause of it all that sparked the Universe itself.

Thanks for reading!
