Destructive

I was the fire
Leaving charred remains
And smouldering hearts
When the smoke cleared
But I moved on in that grey cloud
Never seeing what I left behind
Until one day my self-destruction
Rendered me paralysed
Unable to flee the scene
Of the devastation I had caused
Before me broken and tortured souls
By my selfish, thoughtless behaviour.
