Why does my love have to be like fire?
Why does it burn in every corner of
my mind, body and heart?
Why does love have
Why does it feel like your burning
every part of my soul?
Why do you
have to be like fire?
Why is it when
I kiss you it burns my lips?
When you kiss
me, it’s like your burning down a forest.
Why did you have to do this to me?
Why did you have to leave?
You left me here,
Sad and depressed; and now there is no one
here to burn me.
To burn me because you
ruined everything in me, And now
there is no reason to live for the world.
When it rains it will put the fire out,
Washing away the ruin.
Allowing something new to grow,
But without you because the rain pushed me forward,
Washing away the lies you told me.
Letting me be free of you,
For you were the ruin that the rain washed away.
