Topic #13--"Heat" Entry

Here is a very moving entry from AscenderRisesAbove.

To taste the fruits of hell
One need not go as far as death
For hell is all around us
We are all around it

For me personally,
Hell is as close as my heart,
Come feel the heat
Because it’s burning me alive.
The Fire Within by Nazrul Islam Naz
