Cold Fire

Published by at 12:38 pm under Break Up Poems

Every second I see you is another second spent standing in flames.
You can try and apologize but you know I cannot be tamed.

If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be sitting alone at lunch or running around teary eyed a bunch.
You told me you’d never hurt me that I was the perfect guy. But now you can’t even talk to me and I don’t see why.

I look over my shoulder and see you walking again and suddenly I’m standing in flames trapped and the pain is increased by a magnitude of ten.

You laugh and smile as he wraps his arms around you and kisses you slightly. I turn away feeling my breath leave me and my chest heave tightly.

I just wanna escape and never return so I never have to see that beautiful smile and feel myself in the flamesas I burn.

I’m not suicidal and I’m not even depressed, I’m just all alone in the world, and you took part of me away when you left.

I try and forget the pain, and forget the hurting, but the thoughts by themselves are too burdening.
Finally I just accept the feelings, and embrace the pain. It all drifts away and starts to unfold.I stand now not in warm fire, but cold.

    love the theme. cold fire, i mean. says so much about the relationship
    it also tells me much about ur feelings
    the emotions in this r very boldly expressed
    good rhyming – its almost… lyrical
    nicely done
