You burn me,
Like cigarettes dipped in
Regret. And painful memories.
You hold me,
In this hopeful embrace,
And it is in this that you
Trap me. Encircle me like
The next big thing, to
Take down,
Drown. Float it by me,
Sink hope in petty chemicals,
Find me in a dream,
Sing to me truth, and
Deliver me from deception.
