Poem: Keeping The Flame

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Keeping the Flame

They scars one another's heart
but the flame of their love
burns out of control.

A feeling neither wants to extinguish,
they connect on a higher level,
sparking embers
to keep the fire burning.

Discovering new ways
to journey this path,
keeping their passion from burning out.

Keep a little

Fire burning;

However small

However hidden

— Cormac McCarthy
