Burning.


Some people start a fire

And fall in it.

Shattered

And picking up the pieces

Is anything worth what it once was?

Because everything valuable

Has burned away.

Eyes as dark as ash

Stare right through

Nothing remains anymore.

How am I supposed to breathe

When this goes against

All I thought was real

I'm choking on this smoke

You breathe out

It's all poisoned.

You bring out the worst in everything

You're always burning

Words laced with fire

So warm it feels cold.

It doesn't cost anything to burn.
