Before

Standard

I thought not of the careless days,

For there would be no more

I thought not of your tender ways,

Left in that place called ‘before’

 

Gathered my memories in guilty hands

I’ll confess to the fool who understands

Wisdom gifted me to learn –

Only a fire that’s fed will burn

 

I set myself ablaze with the past

Hungry flames licked my skin;

From a well where no thirst lasts

I’ve come to live again

 

Thank you for taking the time to read and please feel free to share your thoughts…
