Watching You Burn

Watching You Burn

Wine back the clock in my chest
it was ticking like I time bomb
Un-pinned grenades fall to the ground
and splash back up slapping you in the face
Your scarred for life with my blood and tears
Your burns are deep and the sizzling never stops
Wanting to apply pressure with cream to calm the flame
But the bandages don’t hide how disfigured you are
I leak salty water from my eyes on to your open wounds
And I cringe because it hurts me to hurt you
even though you be so deserving
You wouldn’t tear out your eyes so I tried to do it for you
But you smacked my hand and kissed me deeply.
And then me pushing you away lighting a match
and watching you burn.
