burning cicus

my love you have left
with a thousand full seats
now i am empty
a burning circus i shall make
one to be filled
with my fear and hate
without you
i am so empty
as like an empty arena
in my heart
our big top coated with
an nasty slew
of acid ,gasolie
and poison too
i fill againg
the empty seats
to trick them all
as the show begins
the seats are pulled
as the clowns dance and
children cry
their laughter
fills the air
as i stand center ring
and say
now is the moment
you have been living
your lives for
as i drop the match
the mixture catches
and down they burn down to ashes
the clowns faces melt
in the burning
made by you
to me
to all of them
their end my end
our end
a buring circus of hate and love all for you
inspired by the great barnum and bailey circus fire in hartford

i am a misuderstood lunatic

Melting Clowns, Indeed
This warmed my heart.

I really liked this one, Schindees. It brought to mind some horrific (but welcome) images, and it presented an interesting scene for reflection.

The English here is much improved, too. Just a few mistakes here and there.

Good work!
