Do Not Dwell

Confusion devours this heart of mine

Was that a spark upon my lips?

Dancing across my tongue?

One brief flash of light

A burst of warmth to melt my ice

I dare not question the sensation

Dare not dwell on a hopeless cause

For so long my heart of stone has hardened

The key lost deep within the depths

A hole so immense I had thought it never to be filled

Yet a tiny spark dances on my lips

My body aching for more

My skin does not crawl at the thought

Electricity buzzes just beneath the surface

The shimmering vale is lifted

And I actually like what lay beyond

Do not dwell on a hopeless cause I say

But is it hopeless?

Truly?
