""We succeeded in taking that picture (from deep space), and if you look a it, you see a dot. Thats here. That's home. Thats us. On it, everyone you ever heard of


Lies
They burn me up
Consuming
Like a fire
Merciless it wages
A war in its path
They destroy me
From the inside
Out

You
You thrive upon this fire
Keeping it burning
At all costs
No matter
Who else is harmed
In the telling
And setting
Of the fires

It burns you constantly
Blazing red-orange from
Within
The fire is instilled unto your
Heart

No changing
No going back
You act like
You've done no wrong
But you have
Hurt me beyond those
Simple reparations

I wonder
If you ever regret
What you did
To me

I know
That I regret
Wasted time
With you

This is just really about life and how people will hurt you and something that recently happened in my life. I hope that this is relatable to readers...and enjoy :)
