I close my eyes and sigh

To try to swallow down
The guilt
My conscience invaded my dreams last night
And I thought I lost everything
What pushed me to this point in my life
To smile at the sweet sentiment
Gifted in a secret box
Blessed with a secret kiss
Hidden from the one who 
Lies
So close to my heart
I stare at the flame as it plays with my fingers
Warming my skin
Illuminating a darkness
And he lies
Beside me and talks in his sleep
I feel nauseous
As I stand at a void 
Clouded with secrecy 
Inviting with intimacy
 Surrounded by raging fire

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
