The Fire Consumes - Poem by J. Hosmer

Leaving me no room,
Room to stand,
I throw out my hand,
Thrown for you to take.

And as I wait,
My body aches,
Aches for you,
You the one,
The one who brought the sun.

My world is dark,
I'm blind to life,
Waiting for a spark,
To light the chasm,
That tore us apart.

I was lost with you,
Now lost alone,
With no idea as to where I'm going,
Or what I'll do,
Cause you took all of that with you.

I'll let you be,
And let you think,
Just don't leave me back,
Back at the start,
Where it all began.

Where life was hell,
Though no one could tell,
But I saw you and fell,
Up out of hell,
To skys above,
Like a white winged dove.

I flew for awhile on cautious wings,
Knowing eventually you would see the things,
That I had to hide,
Deep down inside for no reason at all.

I wish you could see,
What it is that you do to me,
I wish you could feel,
What I feel...

As this fire consumes me.
