The fire catches; burning away

Erasing every trace of yesterday.

The smoke floats up; escape

But still the memories haunt; mind rape.

Waking up; light the spark

Realization leaves its mark.

This poor heart; cracked never broken

Always left bleeding; scars open.

The fire catches; burning away

Erasing every trace of yesterday.

The smoke floats up; escape

But still the memories haunt; mind rape.

The fire’s snuffed; the bed’s been made

No one’s innocent; no one can be saved.
