Ashes

I still don't know what happened

I still don't understand

I would be unafraid to walk through fire

If you would take my hand

This flame within you flickers,

Burns out and re-ignites

But where is the warmth inside of you,

When I'm alone in the cold, dark night?

Your touch, it burns the surface

But the feeling lingers under the skin

So afraid to bring disaster

You don't know how to begin

I've learned that playing with fire

Is the riskiest game of all

Just know that I'll still be here

To catch you when you fall
