Burnt To Life

Secret Thoughts Within

Original image by nevs28 found here

My life was numb
living through the hours in a disconnected haze
nothing to look forward to
except a colourless sunrise

Then you came along  
and with you
I felt something
            seen and safe
I felt something
            no longer alone

It didn’t last
now you’re gone
but I’m no longer numb 
I still feel something
            a pain which scalds inside my veins
            burning through me

I don’t ignore the agony
It’s twisted 
but
the terrible way you treated me
brought me back from the grave
and burnt me back to life
