Feeding The Flame Of Insecurity

As I looked in your eyes, 
I saw a tiny flicker 
As a small piece of your love for me 
Died deep within you 

A flicker so small 
You barely gave it notice, 
But it blazed like the sun 
As it seared my heart 

I felt my soul shiver 
As if your precious gift 
Was pulled from body 

A sickening wave of despair 
Passes through me 
As I realize your love for me 
Will no longer be whole 

My heart is left broken 
And bleeding with regret,
Unable to mend the wound 
That has been inflicted. 

Will time heal the damage? 
Or will I have to suffer 
A slow painful death 
As the fire within you 
Slowly dies out, 
As your once loving arms 
Releases it embrace on my soul. 

Shall I continue to fan the flames 
That I see still burning inside you, 
Or does the fuel for my love 
No longer have the capacity to sustain it? 
I think I shall just close my eyes 
And let fate run its course.
