The soul that captured my essence
has vanished before my eyes.
Liquor seems to remedy the mind
to block memories that I solely cherish.
The heart seems to beat slower, while
cold and hollow. I have been burning
yes, I have been burning it is such a burden.
This flame on my chest, has no insurance to
pay for the damage.

Walking but not knowing the destination.
Smiling, but lonely and broken.
Appreciating the beautiful moments but
crying in secret. I have been burning
yes I have been burning it is such a burden.
This flame on my chest has no insurance to pay
for the damage since you vanished before my eyes.

This poem was inspired by the song Burning by Sam Smith
