His pores bursting,
the golden lava flows mercilessly over his entire being, marring his Adonis face and body.
Beneath the heat and burning, he remains stoic,
allowing his inner self to ooze over his outer being – the competition fierce.
Serenity leaks from his eyelashes
allowing the molten thoughts to taste the air
congealing on his tear-streaked face.

What strife remains inside this body
to have it bear such pain?
What angst still exists to erupt yet?
What more is left?

His body shimmers with the pain
being borne so majestically,
He will rise from the volcano
purging him and will begin anew.
