Flint of Want

Dance in the ashes of desperation,
set fire to darkness etched,
in the crevices of your soul.
Step determined through the graveyard,
of hopes resting place,
scream shout wake your hearts light,
bring sacrificed emotions back.
let them in.
Your eyes dark and empty,
cant you see?
Its coming closer each second shimmer,
ignited by the flint of want,
life's the gasoline,
burning bright all the shadows,
dance,
in the ashes of desperation.
