The Flame

The Flame When the flame dies What else is there to burn? Would it be all the deceit and lies? Transformed into ashes of no return When the flame no longer shows What else will be there to take its place? Perhaps the relief of what is known That my love for you was a total waste When the flame has gone out Would it be only darkness remaining there? Or would shadows of light come about Healing a wounded heart with care When the flame is no longer Does it forever destroy your passion for desire? I feel that a soul’s flame becomes much stronger So someday it will ignite love again, into a burning fire…

    Most of the time it takes time to heal..Sometimes one just gets worn out from bad emotions that happen in a bad relationship..That drains a person down and they have to heal..Great work about the topic..Enjoyed reading this morn..Thanks for stopping by my blog..Sara
