Withering Flame

Embers of hope spark within my heart, Daring to wish for a semblance of change Yet again, my expectations are extinguished As quickly as they came to fruition, A withering flame trying desperately to maintain life

The Quiet One

Always the quiet one, the one who stays silent I'll continue to be quiet, not saying a word, Never calling your behavior out But, I'll write it down, make a note, create a mark For every time I've been disappointed, wronged, or hurt I won't let it out, but I won't forgive or forget Stored in my mind, chained in my chest
