"Sparks Escape my Lips"

By:Cassandra Freiborg 1/25/06

There are words Ive locked up,

in a safe inside my heart,

to guard those,

they'd surely hurt.

A long lost solace,

found in a healing touch,

an embrace broken,

your solemn goodbye,

destroys my peace,

my illusions.

Reminding me again,

that these days cant go on.

Those words inside me,

starting to burn.

My mouth sizzles,

and sparks escape my lips,

and you turn around,

eyes wide in suprise-or hurt.

I cough fire, crying,

like you've never heard these words,

escape my lips before.

I love you.

Whose the one who's really dying?

Inside Im burning up.

I collapse to my knees,

so sick to my stomach,

with all this heat.

I cant stop the fire inside,

I love you, I love you, I love you.

So why am I burning?
