Burning bushes,
Turned forest fires
Hidden resentments,
Turned misconstrued words
We try to contain it,
To settle within the depths of our hearts,
Without saying the things that hurt
Yet, sometimes we can’t stop it
Because, let’s face it
Fire, isn’t something to be controlled
Sometimes, the forest needs to burn
‘Cos only then,
Does new life spring outta those ashes
So when the rage,
The tears, the resentment,
And the hurt can’t be contained
Just let it burn.

  1. I absolutely love this one!


    I have just come across your blog and am really enjoying you poetry so far. I am putting together a collection of poems from both women and men about Love, relationships and dating. The book is called 7 Shades of Love. I would love to include your poem.

    This poetry book is designed to compliment my self-help book Mr Wrong, β€œa humorous and insightful exploration into why some women continually Mr Wrong and how to set out onto a positive path to Mr Right.” Check out my about page for more info.

    Please, if you are interested in contributing. Get in touch. For examples of my poems check out one I wrote here called Real Love. http://dingdongitsmrwrong.wordpress.com/2012/10/07/real-love-is/ Also search for Real Love and Strong Women. Poems can be as long or short and in any format you wish.

    I look forward to hearing from you! If you are interested in getting involved, please inbox me or email me at dingdongitsmrwrong@yahoo.co.uk
