My Fire

The words may not have been spoken
But I still have my fire
        thriving within me
It burns for you
                it mourns for me
The parts I've lost,
  the ones I can't share
          parts only you know
Because out loud it can never live
not the way you embrace it,
        the way you accept me
I lay my fire at your feet
because only you would not succumb
only you would emerge with me
