It stands alone.
Like our love, it was once filled with burning embers that cast a warm glow on our world.
But neglect is a powerful thing.
The embers fizzled out.
Charred pieces are all that remain and there is no more warmth.
The elements of life battered what was once beautiful.
The rusty shell stands alone, forgotten and empty.
But a new fire burns within me.
Disappointment has been replaced with hope.
Happiness and passion fuel the flames in my mind.
No longer will my fire be contained.
It is free to burn at will.
And imagination and desire will be the oxygen for my fire.
