Up in Smoke

I burn your photos to see you
Go up in smoke.
The dim embers of what's left
should tell you how nothing lasts
The death of passion, the end of all
I gave up for you.

My reward? Another girl.
She can have you, because I apparently
could not.
She can keep you
In her heart, in my hell, in your lack of guilt.
Never again.
I'm stronger than this.

Am I?
No cracks in a completely shattered heart

That you can see.

Must you beguile me?
It doesn't matter now,
For the fire of “us” has quelled.
