Smoke triggers me. It reminds me of the forest fire.

Smoke

Smoke triggers me.

It reminds me of the forest fire.

The one that came for my home.

It reminds me of cutting.

Of wallowing in the darkness.

It reminds me of chinooks,

dumping buckets of water,

and flashes me back,

into the evacuation camp.

When I could see it was fire.

When I couldn’t it was haze.

It reminds me of the promotion,

the one I didn’t get. My failure.

My extreme disappointment.

It makes me self loathe.

Smoke, has become my enemy.

A monster that I have to fight.

A demon that I must slay.

It comes after my hope,

and tries to destroy me.

Smoke is a reminder,

of a time I’d like to forget.
