BURNED

I’m the one who suffers,

My face is wretched stained.

Tear-carved lines, sleepless nights.

Can’t seem to find my way.


You go on, live your life,

Standing here, can’t figure why.

Don’t know how one can give,

The other takes. Smiles and lies.


But still I come back for more.

When will I finally learn?

No soft angel-whispers here,

Just one more chance to burn.


Wake me from this dreadful dream,

Choking now, I push it down.

Love was not all it seemed,

Love’s pain my soul surrounds.


All you take will eat you up,

One day you will see.

You took love into your hands

Crushed it, then crushed me.


Ashes burned beneath the flame,

You think you conquered me.

I got up and walked away.

Look now, I’m finally free.

They say the best revenge is living well. In affairs of the heart, the best revenge is living free. Well done.
