I’M STILL HERE
All roads led to the gates of your heaven
where you held me high just to watch me fall
along with the delights of your demons that lurked in the dark
Doused in gasoline, you lit a match to watch me dance among the flames.
You smile with baited breath waiting for me to burn.
But I’m still here among the embers just waiting to breathe again.
