Burn The Problem

Burning away the problems of the night.

Another problem to be seen, Coiling up tightly.
It turns into a cigar.
Grab a lighter, or a match.
Light up the cigar.
Burn it down with each breath.
Just watch it burn,
Glowing red,
Glowing bright at each inhale.
Pull in the smoke,
And exhale again.
Let go of the smoke,
The problem.
Release it all.
Burn the problem away.
Just burn it and throw away the feelings.
The pieces that cannot be fixed.
