On this paper, blank and pure
I will take this note and make my cure.
I look in the mirror and see a monster
It stares back at me with joy and laughter.
It devours me from the inside out,
Killing all that I care about.
So I write its name on this page
And douse it in my rage.
I place it beneath the grate,
And stare at it with hate.
I set the note ablaze,
And watch as the smoke forms a haze.
I watch as the flames leap higher,
In this baptism by fire.
