The Fire Inside Will Always Burn
Kelly S. McDonald

I feel foolish, as I simply cry.
I want to stop, I really try.
Streaming down my cheeks, they remain to fall.
They stop for a minute and I think "that's all"
*FLASH*... an unwanted thought enters my head
push it out, push it out...no!!!...loud and clear, it enters instead
I hear sirens in the distance...and see visions of smoke...
and recall memories of, the promises broke.
I can't breath, I begin to panic
I run outside scared and frantic.
He's not here, now I know why...
he didn't care, it was all a lie.
So many people and one on the phone
and amongst them all, I feel alone.
My world is burning…down before me
say he didn't do it... not to me... no, it couldn't be...
Crying harder, the vision has vanished,
and from my life he has been banished.
But the scars and hurt, I feel inside
will remain there 'til, the end of time.

Hi Kellsue!

Thank you both for commenting.  This poem was a turning point for me after the fire at my apartment, started by someone I thought cared about me.  After writing this, I was able to finally move on and leave him and the fire in the past.  Thank you for taking the time to read!!
