Burning Embers

Burning embers, a flame that never left
A spirit still living in need of a breath
Just a word or a look could revive
Dangerous feeling, fantasies kept alive
The ghost of the undead only slept 
Holding the feelings for which it wept
For precious memories they could not forget
Burning embers not dead yet
But silence is a shroud for secrets kept
Are feelings allowed to collect a debt
Please consider don't leave abused
I'm willing, if you make the first move

    I like your rhyming couplets..Sometimes in relationships there are some embers or sparks that need reviving..Enjoyed reading your creative work this evening..Thanks for stopping by..My deceased father-in-law once said that if one was careful in their selection of plants, trees, shrubs and flowers, they could have something blooming all year long..Camelias and pansies for winter help keep the landscape bright but now we have a deer population that enjoy those plants..Sara
