'Passion'


There's a passion that burns, between you and I,
Igniting a spark, that could light up the sky,
So hot is the fire, that burns through the night,
It blurrs out the difference, of whats wrong and whats right,
All that I wanted, was for love to take hold,
I could feel the fire that burned,
With white hot emotion, that was out of control,
and flames that wouldn't be turned,
But how is there love, and a passion so strong,
When two minds can't meet, and everythings wrong,
With no understanding, and nowhere to turn,
Like throwing gas on a fire, stand back let it burn,
When the back fires are lit, there's no turning back,
as another lesson is learned,
But I knew all along, the danger involved,
play with fire, you always get burned,
I did not want to lose us, but it seems I have,
as the flames have burned us down,
And as I walk through the rubble, of whats left of my life,
not a thing is left to be found.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
