Burn

Updated on March 19, 2017

Love I stand before you blazing,

While your searching for the flames.

Wondering why your smelling smoke

And we are not still playing games.

You've accidentally lit a fire,

A burning mangled match,

And now your blind to burning

That engulfs without a catch.

Your standing there and wondering,

How to force the tide to turn?

How do you save a person whose

Convinced that they should burn?
