A small flame
Still burns deep inside me
Fuelled by the fantasy of love.
A yearning of hope
To still find that eternal soulmate
With a connection that will fit like a glove.
Yet past lessons
Have hurt me badly
As I gave it all that I had and still lost.
It is all part of the journey, I know
With lessons to be learned on our way
But once bitten twice shy, as they say.
