(my Flame) Burning From The Inside Out

My flame from
within

My flame of
darkness

Flame of
anger
this flame is
my beast

It rages within me
higher and higher
it burns

I really need
to put this
flame out
for it has
already almost
taken my life

how do you
put a flame
out that is receiving
constant fuel

I know the flame
will never totally
be put out

Can I not
get it to
burn lower
for it is
so high now

That it is
once again
close to that
point of
serious harm

I need to be able
to lower it
to a level where
it causes no
harm

I need to have it
under total
control
for in this
manner
I can so
survive

I learn to
control
this flame

I learn to
control
the fuel

I need to use fuel
in a positive way
before it reaches the
flame

I need to be able
to release the fuel
without it touching
the flame

I so say

This is a really good poem! I love it! You are really talented!
Very fine poem! I wonder if it wouldn't be even better if you shorten it just a bit? I think... and it' s only my opinion! ... that the last two stanzas could be cut completely. But maybe you had a strong reason for putting them there!
Nicely done. Passion of anger and the pain that goes with it. Great poem.
