  • Mood:

Inspired by my tears at college group tonight (it sounds odd I know)....

My eyes burn.
Not with the burn of lack of sleep
Or the itchiness of spring
or of a grain of sand

They burn with a fire
A raging inferno deep within
Held captive; held at bay
by mere bonds of the mind

One look
and the soul knows
the beast within wishes
nay, yearns for release.

My eyes burn
From the momentary lapse
In strength and in control
Never to happen again.
