the wheel (freeverse)

more for the wheel 
more souls
as it turns
set on fire, it burns
more momentum 
going faster and faster 
through the canvas of this life
creating and destroying as it sees fit
supplied by the fuel of millions
in constant motion 
paving the way

the flame gets brighter
it's hot and it's withering  
too much fire, it was not made for this 
we kept pushing it
engulfing everything in its heat
as it carves into the flesh of the earth 

overcome with the burden 
it will consume this world
in white hot embrace
