We chase the people we love,
Even if we're already hurting
Even if our heart is already burning
We numb ourselves from the pain,
Even if it's making it hard to breathe
Even if it kills us inside
We chase the fire
For we are always ever so willing to burn
But at one point as warriors, we get tired -
We get tired of chasing the fire that destroys us,
Its scourging flames consume us
Instead of chasing the fire, we become the fire -
We had enough.
We burn out.
