                hand side border


A fire burns
In the darkness of my soul
Hidden deep

Buried

Hoping it will burn out
That it will leave me
To the fate I so deserve

Yet it burns

A smouldering ember
An obstinate spark of life

Waiting

To flare like the Phoenix rising

To cast out the eternal night
Enveloping my soul

And melt the hard ice
Wrapped around my heart
