Burn Out

Light the flame, curse my name

Tell me it could be the same

Try your best to hide the shame

Let me take all of the blame.
I thought I knew you…
I thought that I could shelter you.

Reduced to rubble, now I see

That you were- I thought- home to me.
I’ll flicker until I burn out like you wanted.
Just let go, let go!

I think to myself most every night.

But you’re a fire I can’t put out.

I pray you’ll find your satisfaction

In my ashes, scattered on the breeze.
