Wet Embers


    you are my failed 

    arson attempt .

    i wanted to set

    fire to your soul

    and warm your 

    infinite heart .

    but then you 

    decided that you

    wanted her flame

    instead of mine ,

    so the situation

    changed severely .

    now , instead of 

    wanting to bring 

    you warmth and 

    light , i want to char

    my passion for you

    to a crisp so that it

    burns and crumbles

    and leaves me only

    with ashes that i 

    can sprinkle into

    a cool body of water

    so that those feelings

    can die .
