Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A voice whispers within the choking smoke.
The Cinder's Eye

Down at the bottom of that pit; despair,
my understanding came; flickering flare.
I looked down deep into the Cinders Eye.
Twas at that point my mind began to fly.
Their was no way to tell; would live or die.
It was the burdens carried it would spare,
to me somehow it seemed to be unfair.

What flame told me seemed very special, rare.
It spoke; the smoke sprang up to greet and share.
“Freely it is given, you just cannot buy.”
Once flame had finished I was left to cry.
It was not long, my soul could see the lie.
The fire was ablaze, I was here nor there,
That saddened feeling locked me in a stare.

It whispered,
"Carry heavy heart, open mind to see,
this is the only path to find your bliss,
the only way out of endless abyss,
please heed my words and listen, sanity."

I answered,
" There’s only one true place to wait for thee,
i’ll suffer here from loves poisonous kiss,
while Cupids arrow has my heart to miss,
Yet, will not run nor will I ever flee."
