Honestly, I can relate to this. Haha!!! This poem is delightful, the words you used here stirred a passion in me that I only truly feel whenever I write myself. I love the new one, and i understand how it is sometimes. I like how it's short, and to the point. Well, Chrys, a good job as always, and I wish I could write more, but there is not that much more to say, it's just great.
This is just beautiful; I donít think any praise will do this justice.
In this write you say your soul is on fire, like a burning coal inside a tree, still small but looking for oxygen, waiting for a chance to escape. You have so much passion inside you, its keeping you awake at night. I canít help to feel that its age, your physical body (old growth soul) that keeps your passion from getting out, and its frustrating.
I might be completely wrong, lucky poetry is always open for discussion.
I liked your meter, itís not constant but out loud it reads with so much passion and flow. I think you achieved this with you weird rhyme. Itís a complicated but good structure.
I really enjoyed your poem, thank you for a delightful read.
