Apparent Contradiction

I am a fire

A flame that consumes itself.

Burns everything in its path.

Nothing safe.

Leave behind no trace.

No mercy, don’t care about race.

Don’t care if there’s a pretty face.

I devour, I conquer.

There are no restrictions.

I cause harm, my game is infliction.

I’m a soul on fire.

I have no desire.
