Burning to ashes

February 3, 2008

Burning to ashes
My heart turns to dust
Still filled with desire
For his teenage lust

A touch of his hand
Is all that I need
To sew up my heart
That continues to bleed

But his touch is cold
Down in the ground
And his once smiling lips
Don't utter a sound

His heart filled with love
Is flooded with death
His eyes are now empty
He won't take a breath

My heart will stay broken
Because his love is my thread
And he'll continue to sleep
In his eternal bed
