Secret

September 7, 2008
By Mary Beth Blackburn, Louisville, KY

It started a year ago,
It has only slowed.
I long to tell someone.
I burn to tell someone.
There is a fire in my mind.
A secret fire
That no one can ever see.
No one can ever see.
I’ve been burning for a year.
Some day it’ll be ash.
Hopefully secret ash.
