Keeping my distance

Whirlpool of fire and cold steel
Tempered ice through the blood
Red rage blinding of sight
Throbbing and pulsing to burst
Logic and reason long burnt
Proximity singeing the flesh
Words shredding the heart
Distance my only recourse
Until this furnace of fury dies down
And only embers and ashes remain
