The Lie

One of my own favorite poems. I feel that I've said so much in just a few lines. Enjoy =)

Flames flicker and lick at my skin,
while shame and fury settle within,
inside of, within, this unshedable skin.

This secret I've been saving, this unbeatable lie,
will stay with me forever until the day I die,
this terrifying, baleful, unpredictable lie.

The End
