Arson tonight

My passion burns like arson tonight
this fire yes, I did ignite
I was the dead oak tree, your provided the gasoline...

All consuming, flames licking the sky
screams of terror, then my sighs
I played with matches, and got burnt, no lesson here can be unlearnt.

I ruined my friendship and lover too
mixing them together, I should have knew
the oldest proverb in the book, love and lust can be mistook

Why I chanced it, I’ll never know
I’d rather have my friend back, the lust can now go
Its a mingling that cannot be undone, I’d wish it’d change with the rising sun....

Why, I pray ?
Did I screw this up!

    ‡ I'm Listening Unto Lionel Richie's Song Right Now Called, 'Truly.' I Love That Beautiful Heart's Melody, Sweet Beautiful Andrea. After Viewing This Your Own Priceless Heart's Profoundly Beautiful Verse, I Do Agree If Merely 'Lust' Be The Culprit As A Thief Stealing Something Pure And Beautiful From One's Life Then, Yesss, Quench Its Flames Within The Crytsal Waters Called, 'Love.' I Really Dig Your Poetry. Your Beauty's Passion Paints Your Splendours Wonderfully. My Love, Rachel *
