Burn to Ashes, Love to Dust

But you set fire to my heart
Heard me cry out as you walked away
Why would you leave me this way
Tears vaporized into thick air
No help for me to call
As I burned, my love fell to ash
Between my fingertips gray rubbish falls
My end is what I gave birth to
The roar of the blaze muffled my mourning
Just like this flame I was enraged
A sweet ode to you fucking me
Fuck you
And in so many ways I came back to you
Over and over
Your arson I desired
A twinkle in my eye
Hypnotized by the thought of us being different
Your flame lit
Engulfing me in your kind of love
And I learned I would always fall for you
Love and flaws
In one motion my soul caught on fire
Lying beneath you
To the ashes I fall
