Pain inside where it isn't felt
Till ice melts and wears away
The walls and fragile memories
Rewriting the past to be okay,
Another dawn, another day....
No longer burning, quiet and tame,
The fervor gone, the silence lame
With words unsaid and feelings remain;
Time passes and jerks you round
Desire now lives underground
Somewhere a flame, somewhere a name,
But so long ago, a word not heard
And a nothing where it stayed.
Broken up from where you were
Ashamed to feel, to have the nerve.
The new begins and dies as fast,
And the heart now aches for what is past.
Dreams flourish and spark anew,
Something for the heart to hold to
