Nothing's Left

It came like an uninvited stranger in the night,

Causing chaos, what a sight!

I could see the dancing flames moving through the trees.

I could feel the radient heat upon my face.

I could smell the stench of the smoke that clinged to my hands and clothes.

I could taste the fumes and the cinders of the burning trees, like acid in my mouth, suffocating, intoxicating.

I could hear the silent cries of the trees as they burned.

Now there is nothing left just blackened hills and remains of fallen trees.

Where there was life now there is nothing.
