” so maybe you were a lighter and
maybe you lit me on fire.
the heat of your gaze was nothing
compared to the fire burning in your mouth.
every word scorched,
every sentence devastated.
so maybe you were a lighter and
maybe i was once a firework.
but you ran out of fluid
and i’m all burned out
so what have we become now? ”
