Smothering the Flame

Smothering the Flame

Smothering the Flame

Raging flames to wilted ash
That inferno could never last
Molten lava to stone cold rock
The fire in your eyes is now just dark
Our fire once burned with fury, rage and lust
Our burning passion is now dry as dust
You became too engulfed in the flame between us
But just like fire needs oxygen, we needed trust

You can’t control a fire
and it’s too hard to tame
So you suffocated me
just like the flame

In your attempts to keep this blaze alive
You just put it out with all your lies
That glorious flame that sparked our fire
The emotion, the passion and the sizzling desire
You tried to protect it, but you tried too hard
Now we’re both burnt out, scorched and charred
You did all you could to save the fire we shared
But you were smothering the flame, it had no air

You cant control a fire
and it''s to hard to tame
So you suffocated me
just like the flame

The fire weakened
with every tear that I cried
Slowly extinguishing the flame,
until the fire died
