I would like to let you know the heroes that were going to save you have disappeared.



Your eyes have dried out and you’re way too young.


You’re a child and I’m not a child anymore.


You were a fire burning bright,

and I hope the little spark in me reignites.


You have grown weaker, my little heart, the weight of your guilt was too heavy.


You wont stop playing with the flames,

and my child I can’t feel the heat anymore.


My love, my flesh and bone.


The fire will burn out,

and the ash and coal.


The harsh bright lights and here comes

the wake up call.
