Elements of fire

Burned swirls and flames around fiercely

Ashed my livings...


When I was 22 years old, My First Apartment caught fire while my Then at the time Boyfriend was home and I was out with my Friends. I was traumatized when I Arrived to see an ambulance and a crowd of my neighbors outside... I was stopped ✋ and forbidden to go inside but I rushed past and Ran up the nearest staircase.

Down the hall on the second floor, I gasped for air... From my view, I saw clouds of dark smoke coming from beneath my front door 🚪 I panicked because I knew that my boyfriend was inside sleeping...

My building manager arrived behind me and called out for me to stop, but I sprinted toward the door and entered my key... To my surprise ‼️ 😮 I opened the door and was Knocked back against the wall by Buffers of Smoke 💨 I cried and screamed out his name, but all I could see was the Burning Flames...My Friend/Building manager held onto me and I Cried on her shoulder.

Nothing was saved from that apartment all my possessions were Charred, but he was ok! He jumped out the window and also I learned that the fire started because of him, but that's another saga!

I hope you enjoyed My short story /poem❤️‍🔥 #fire #scorched Handsomelouiithepoet
