"The world is big and I am small,
I am short and the world is tall.
The world is cruel and I am hurt,
The world is cold and full of dirt."


The melody of a children's song
Echoed through the empty floor
When the shadow of a former self
Marched towards that certain door.

Behind that door there was a short shelf,
Drawers unlocked by a key
Agile fingers had stolen before.
The lighter was found with glee.

"The world is big and I am small,
The world is too deaf for my call.
The world is cruel and turned away,
The world is cold and has to pay!"


Like ice the darkened walls did glisten
On the floor there was a lake.
The last canister soon was empty
And the pale hand did not shake.

With a soft hiss the flame's brought to life.
It stretched and began to dance.
A hand tried touching it tenderly
Staring eyes entered a trance.

"The world is big and I was small,
It never did love me at all.
But with you the tables will turn!
But with you my friend, it will
burn!"
and the lighter fell...

------
I may change the title once I found a better one. Any suggestions?

"Embers" or "Pyre"

In other news, good use of the rhyme scheme. I like how the refrain changes near the end and the bold word was effective in its delivery.

Spectacular imagery. The last bit - ""The world is big and I was small, It never did love me at all." is simply fantastic. Good work!

Well you know how much I like, we spoke about it via the chat. This is truly amazing and I can feel what the person is feeling. The coldness that surrounds her and the desire to burn it all down...to feel warmth again within her heart and even soul, instead of the icy abyss that is there. It is bitter sweet and I love it.
