I smell gasoline in your breath
Ah, I smell gasoline in your breath
let me run to get the match
to make you burn to warm my bath

I smell gasoline in your breath
Ah, I smell gasoline in your breath
Let me fetch the post-it pad
so you could whisper your thought of goliath

I smell gasoline in your breath
Ah, I smell gasoline in your breath
How wonderful to wait for the time
when you finally got refined before your death.

   Have a wonderful Sunday, dear lady SB.

Gas? I can't afford to drink gas.

Nice try, though.

My dear lady SB, it is not "you." It is a woman's wish.

I smell gasoline;
dad’s been washing the dog agin.
It’s better I suppose
than when he was wearin’ Vaseline
and draggin’ his butt in the sand,
seems to me
the old boy’s gotten outta hand
and maybe we should think a bit
of teachin’ him to heel and stand,
sometimes
he does the weirdest things I ever seen…
…what?  
…no…not the dog,
it’s dad I mean.

I smell gasoline
I can't afford to buy it
My car runs on fumes!

i smell gasoline that can't be seen.
the chilling night, the silence screams
foundation's cracked
i'm on my back
soon this house will be a passing dream

a nightmare come to life
smothered in gasoline
the innocent dreams born in this place
will give way to a lasting scene
of ash and soot and smoldering wood
broken bottles... nothing good.
shattered dreams will only gleam
in a cleansing fire and gasoline.

the pills may dull my senses
but i still smell gasoline.
i can barely move a muscle
except with twitch and spastic squeeze.
there's no comfort left in this place
there's a hole in my heart, an empty space
i've got no hope left, my soul is bereft
and the tears i cry, no matter how fast they stream
will be no match for this gasoline.

i smell the smell of gasoline
the smell of abuse and dash-ed dreams
i taste coppery blood and twentysome Xanax
i choke on the fear of what
the next step of my plan is.
i roll over in a childish way
in the childhood house i've grown to hate
sprawled in a puddle of gasoline
i struggle to move; i writhe. i teem.

i smell sickly sweet blood. i smell gasoline.
my shaking hands holding a match's sheen.
not one more child will suffer in this house.
not one more child, not one more spouse.
the matches fall, and the last i'll see
are the fiery tears of gasoline.

The soul is oftentimes a battlefield where reason and judgement wage war on passion and appetite.

"I smell gasoline"

M'lady Blaze what can this mean ?
How dare machines befoul thy lair
'tis blasphemy oh most obscene,
I send you clean, pure mountain air.

Though true that I smell gasoline,
oh Ms. Serene woulds't gladly so
for honor I shall intervene
as dids't another life ago.

Though oil were more in use that age
for those engaged in sorcery
most things as this have been presaged
and thus for pun and poetry

Must I relate I'm of the mind
as you, m'dear, it's most refined.

Thanks for the reply and for the challenge. That's the first thing I've written in ages.

I have poems in my head that just don't rhyme or come out as rambling prose. So I appreciate a challenge that gets me moving.
