Watch me fall into the flames

Carelessly you pushed me away

You won't even recall my name

Call yourself doctor while I decay


Hear the lies echo in your head

I never believed the stories you told

I told you it's on you if I end up dead

Still, you forced me out into the cold


Feel the pain I told you about

Don't pay mind to the burn

Keep quiet and don't dare shout

Fire teaches if you're willing to learn

    Your style amazes me, to speak truth, tell you story…it is told before I can write the words!
