PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

There's a fire that burns behind these eyes
Untouched, unseen but burning inside
A flame that’s been taught to hide
The flame burns untamed and fed by lies
Growing and growing the hotter it gets
There’s a drum that plays inside this heart
Unheard, unseen but playing a song
A drum that’s been beaten to play in silence
The beat that plays keeps repeating
Longer and longer the beats get harder
There’s a rhythm that moves through these feet
