"But there's a hope waiting for you in the dark, you should know you're beautiful just the way you are. And you don't have to change a thing the world could change its heart. No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful." - Alessia

The crackling fire reflects his beating hearts desire,

It illuminates off his face and soul.

The flames are hot with passion 

no words but the silent screams are much dire.


The embers are where his secrets lie

they live deep within his eyes.

The coals are buried beneath the light

but deep inside they shine so bright.


Smoke floats to the sky 

like tears drip from his eyes.

His mouth quivers like the stars that shimmer

The night ending while the fire grows dimmer.


His pleads are burning

his thoughts are yearning

he feels nervous and scared 

yet his heart still beats with desire.
