Burned

do not worry

I will not call you out
or hate you
I will direct those thoughts inwardly
I am the foolish one
who continues to have faith
I am the open door
time and again
and again
and again
it’s not that I never learn
I know
I really know
but hope..
hope brands my soul
as it illuminates  
you
and everyone else
shining brightly
and painfully
all at once
I wish I could live
differently
but this 
is who I am
