You slice my charred heart open with a knife,

My sweet and spicy love is not enough,

I was never enough,

Just something for you to Smash into,

To flatten on your carefree journey,

The journey to becoming insignificant to me,

You mattered once, when I was a virgin to love,

Not the physical kind, the kind that rips your soul in two,

I pinch myself with hands that are becoming gnarly,

Carelessness has caused them to be so,

But the dream does not end, I am happy.

The air is crisp and sweet to taste now,

Now, that I barely remember your face.
