    This is a poem I wrote a few years ago whilst going through a tough time.

    House burnt
    Beyond repair
    Once only a glance
    But now it's a stare
    You're eyes are pulled
    Away from the sky
    Towards an empty shell
    Where my heart did die
    I tried to fight
    But the world's against me
    I tried my best
    But I just couldn't be
    Engulfed by the rage
    Surrounded by the pain
    A love that couldn't survive
    Too much of a strain
    And now I'm gone
    No love to be lost
    I'm escaping the hurt
    My heart covered by frost
    Houses burnt
    Beyond repair
    Released from life
    No more to stare.​
