Blazing Words: The Dance: Circle Of Truth

We dance in circles Careful not to touch

The burning bush of truth.

Every now and then

A spark may pop and burn the skin

Still we hide our dark deep truths within.

Casual moments create a flare

When a scathing memory

Breaks loose another battle

In our long warfare.

It’s a war that we never seem to win

Our silent truce now wearing thin.

I wish sometimes we could just forget

But we’d lose the good

In our quest to slay the bad events.

How long can we go

Avoiding the cracks in our foundation.

One day more

And pain may be our only sensation.
