Let this old volcano awake, erupt and
have everything falling, rain on me;
don`t fear the clouds of pumice, love,
as I shall be your protecting shield.
No worries, I will save you!

I will wrap my arms around you,
hold you close to my chest,
block all the lava rocks and cinder,
protect you from the liquid fire
spewed out only two miles away.

Today is a good day for me to die,
I get to be the hero you asked for,
I don`t mind if this means the end of me
cause I know that for the rest of your life,
I will live in glory. I shall become the one.

I will be the one who
showed up when it mattered,
the one that saved you.
I`ll be the obsidian pearl
that never leaves your neck.
Beat this, future lover boy!

Your poem is awesome. I loved the ending, that "obsidian pearl" part is great! 😊

Thanks @trincowski! It was fun writing it. Glad to hear you liked it!

Wow. You just amaze me. 7 minutes for this? I can't decide my restaurant order in seven minutes, let alone write something readable.

I have experienced the results of one volcano. 40 years ago on May 18th when Mt. St. Helens exploded. Your words ring true with me.

Thank you for sharing this. I really appreciate it.

7 minutes for this?

Sometimes I get inspired faster, while other times it can take up one or two days to write something.

From what I read about it, it was a big one! It must have been really scary to be in the area. The photos I`ve seen online with the eruption column gave me the chills.
