Face the Fire
I  had to face the fire
Of my one and only true desire
You left me to burn
Consumed by my own flames
A hard lesson to learn
To live with the pain
Ten years have passed
And I am content
Still from time to time
The echoes of you in my mind
Remeninsce
I knew it wouldn't be easy
To find my way through the dark
As things between us suddenly
Fell apart
Even though my soul longed to fade
There was still the fire I had to face

Nice work. I think we all have a fire to face in one form or another. You said this poem simply yet touchingly.
