My Suffocating Flame

And he saw 

The light in my eyes,

He saw I was trying,

I was holding on tight.

Once I felt freedom, 

Now I feel too much.

I strive to be back there,

Though my time is not as such.

I am trying so hard, but now I realize,

It’s ok to be stuck in a pit,

You just have to try 

And climb out of the ditch.
