You came into my life like a firestorm,
Something dangerous yet so compelling.
I knew that if I got too close I might get burned,
But there was also the chance that getting too close could ignite a spark, even fireworks perhaps
And so I took the risk, which left me with a wounded heart.
For you were a fire,
And your flames danced on my skin as if it were a stage,
And you put on quite the show.
You’ve filled my lungs with smoke from all your games,
And now I am left charred and scorching in pain.
You extinguished me from your life to create fireworks with someone else
And now all I am left with is nothing but ash.
