Choka 5/7 5/7 5/7 5/7/7

A chapter in the book One Thousand Cranes

Deep Deep Inside

by Gypsy Blue Rose

Deep deep inside me,

burning memories erupt

melting safety walls.

Some say it has been too long

to still grieve your loss,

but a bursting torrential

pain surfaces fast

to rivers of fire and blood

rushing to the crimson sea.
