Matches

So close

But so very, very far away

And it kills me inside

To have you just barely out of reach

And yet so completely unattainable

It's a fire in my soul

That I can't manage to put out

And it's not one of those

Candles or fireplace fires

It's a neighborhood gone up in flames

No one was saved

No one made it out alive

Except for us

In my attempt to destroy the pain

I have destroyed everything else instead

Now all that's left is the pain

And as much as I hate the thought

I think I'm just gonna have to wallow in it

But now I've learned not to play with matches
