“Sky of Fire”

~Esther Mitchell, 1994~

Secrets sheltered in my heart,

Two lives, one existence, torn apart,

A purpose so good,

A heart so often misunderstood.

Secrets whispered in darkened corners,

A truth kept away from those who meant it harm,

A love held so pure and true,

Because its depth was one only we ever knew.

One day in the light of the sun,

A truth we would soon no longer hide,

‘Til Destiny’s hand drew another Fate,

A rise, a fall, one moment too late.

Now, fire paints my sky,

And I can’t even let them see me cry,

A love the world never knew,

A tragedy played out that day in the fire-streaked blue.
