ghost of malice
creeping its way inside
elusive, untouchable
black smoke that slips away
never overcome, never defeated
the abstract demons in the dark

throw fire and stones
rains of acid and lead
walk through the aftermath
gaze with dismay in the inferno
it's your own face

fire can never extinguish
a conceptual foe
walk away
or perish
