Up In Flames (Poem)



Go ahead and give me all of the pain

twist all of my words like you always do,

take a match and watch it go up in flames.

There you go telling everyone lies

without fully understanding what happened,

so here we are you crashed the car

with us wrapped around in the road,

bracing onto the winter air,

hoping that all of this was a dream.


Waking up there you are

lying so sweetly in the dark,

and here I am staring off into the ceiling,

hoping that the sun doesn't rise,

cause that's when it will go up in flames.
