He spews vile venom,

Fills my heart with poison love

He reaches out,

Tells me to come closer

Just to shove me away,

Smirking as I hit the pavement again.

His cold eyes cut like knives

Spilling blood-filled tears.

Endless silence,

He's gone,

This battle is done.

I'm left alone

Still wanting him here,

Despite how he burns me.

It's a fire that I can't live without,

Ashes are remnants of better days.
