Into the Fire

January 1, 2011
By , Riverside, RI
today i finally realized,
i’m over you;
i can’t stand you;
i don’t like you anymore;
and i have no feelings left.

you smashed up my unscarred heart,
took everything we had and
ripped it completely apart.

so i tear up my perfect
fairy tale love story,
everything was all in my head,
and i cut you out of my heart
because everything we had is dead.

i clear you from my mind,
throw all your things away,
finally know i’m better without you,
know in my heart that we are done,
finally say that we are through.

and now,
you are just a tiny scrap of the past,
filed in the back of my brain;
just something that couldn’t last.

you are just something else lost,
just a beautiful thing of the past,
just another lesson to learn,
and as the song goes,
just another picture to burn.
