she's steel bending in his fingers,

burning with beauty,

falling with pain.


she kisses away the tears she brings

and his skin stretches in love

because his heart's filling up with her.

addiction's tie them together

and even though she quit,

she's smoking with his lust.


she knows that no matter how much

it hurts to be apart,

the blistering skin together is worth it.

burning with beauty,

she's steel bending in his skilled fingers.
