Flame and Ashes

They thought their love was forever

Indestructible they told everyone

Complete devotion, trust, honesty

A love so deep there were no comparisons to be found

His love for her was to his distraction

What she felt for him couldn’t be put to words

Two people, two souls, one whole

To him there could never be another who could ever

Replace her

She built her life around him, never mind she’d

Lost her own identity

He kept her close to him, she was never far

From his sight

Her thoughts he dismissed

Yet she loved him still

The black and blue marks that soiled her skin

He said he owned her body and

Everything else she possessed

They thought their love was forever

His love for her was sick and her love

For him was out of fear and desperation

He knew she’d always be his to control

She finally took action and dashed his

Love in flame and ashes
