what's over and done
cannot be rerun
as I stand here with nothing to lose
spitting apologies in front of you
I bathe in my own words
fluttering amongst us in a blur
imprinted on the walls as I speak
the emptiness of this room has me weak
but what's through is through
final and due
so go ahead, burn every letter I wrote
because you can't help but inhale their smoke
pungent, powdery, blackened ash
all of my belongings reduced to trash
the scent of burning old love
as thick smoke rises above
filling your senses causing you to choke
as I did when you lit the letter I wrote
