arson

what is it that i want?
i want to be with you.
i want to see where this goes.
i want this to have every single chance of forever.
you said you wanted the same
then you took it all back.
it’s obvious you’re afraid,
but you left before i could soothe you.
you left before forever
because forever doesn’t exist.
forever is just a sweet nothing
that leaves you lovesick.
and when you’re feeling homesick
and you want to return
i hope you get a flashback
of how your safe haven burned.
you’ll see the match in one hand
and gasoline in the other,
and the nightmares won’t stop
even with your head under the covers.
you won't hate yourself forever
because it doesn’t exist,
but it’ll be a long, long time
before you look yourself in the eye again.
