It burns

by M

You lit up a fire in me that I can't ignore No matter how hard I try, I am unable to put it out

It keeps me warm And creates a soothing feeling within me Its comforting and it gives me power It shed some light into my darkness and enabled me to see

But the fire you lit up also burns It burns It burns It burns

My body is marked with bruises Its as if I was a survivor who escaped from a burning house With no firemen to rescue me

It stings when I get near it And makes my body ache for days

Although the fire you lit up kept me warm and gave me light It also burned wildly and wrecked me

In the same way your love did It saved me But also, destroyed me

Im trying to put out the fire one last time But it wont let me...
