An Unrequited Tale This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

I scream myself awake
the words stuck on my tongue
it burns until I feel no more
it burns till I am numb

I hate that you don't see me
and the fire flush on my skin
but through it all
beside it all
beneath it all
with out it all
I still hear your name
and grin.

This is really cool :) I love the repetiveness of the last few lines especially.
