“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

I am a fire

And I ruin what I touch

I am always afraid

That I am never enough

I am uncontrollable

A stubborn light

But I also give some comfort

Some hope to the night

I hurt those around me

Sometimes I don’t mean to

But other times I want to hurt

And you know this to be true

I take what’s not mine

Leaving others with ash

I don’t care if they hurt

I’ll throw them in the trash

I destroy mercilessly 

But I also keep hands warm

I might just be evil

But I have another form

I give hope to fear

I give light to dark

I renew the old

It all starts with a spark

This spark has to grow

But it can’t be too hot

I haven’t always won

But always have I fought
