My Mistake (standard:poetry, 91 words)

Don't play with fire, it hurts when you let it get out of control.

The smell of burning flesh 

Makes me want to gag 

As my finger blisters and swells 

From my own foolish mistake 

I couldn't help it, 

It was the candle's fault 

It told me to burn that paper 

Just to watch it go 

I held on a bit too long 

Not realizing how close 

The flame really was 

Now I'm nursing my burnt finger 

And soothing wounded pride 

Next time the candle beckons 

I'll turn the other way 

Find something 

That just won't burn as quick 

Something with which I can play.
