FLAME INSIDE

Stare into your eyes,

Searching secrets they conceal.

Never meant to be so hard to you,

Just won't tell you how I feel.

You're always listening for

My silent plea for help and care,

Though knowing that it won't be heard.

You just don't want to understand,

It's not a lesson that I've learnt.

I do revel in my own darkness,

Draw strength from it and then

Rekindle the fire that burnt so low

And try to be happy again.

just tell me what you think, please?
