Ice and Fire

Updated on September 20, 2012


An ice cube

quickly turning blue.

For a moment, I thought I'd be saved

For an instant, I thought by you.

The way you'd smile

The way we'd kiss

The way you swore

You'd never do this.

I really, truly believed you

And that is where it starts,

Caught up in the fire,

Blinded by the sparks

But every story is the same

And every person has a game

And they will pull you deeper in

And ultimately they will win

But I am tired of the fire

Tired of being burned

After all the brands and scars

Finally, I learned

And so I'll sit in my block of ice

Because it's destruction will suffice

Slowly and steadily I'll expire

But I won't be consumed by fire.
