-I-

-I-

One day
You will realize
That you had it all and
you let me slip by
I clung onto
Your fingertips
You still left
Leaving my universe
spinning awry

Just like everything I touch
We turned to ashes too
I cannot fathom why
But you walked away
And I watched, all pride forgotten,
You didn’t even turn

I sit in the pouring rain
Under the night sky
With a pack of
sodden cigarettes
in my hand
And I burn

And I burn

And I burn…
