The Burning One

   In the begin.. Had ink settled in my skin, a tattoo of you & I've committed a sin... Forced in with no remorse, of course I'm like a corpse under the porch... Ignite the torch & let my body scorch, let me learn how to burn...

 Its my turn, I get what I've earned... Flirt with disaster, I wrote the final chapter on how to flatter... Disguise the matter as I hurt & shatter... I choose to come unglued, give me a clue as to why you keep me confused... Always used but you had the perfect excuse.....

 I'm the flame, the taste of your pain.. A contestant inside your game, bless it because its all about to change... Soaked in promise, under oath & I hope I don't choke... So clever but never been together, all I ever asked for was forever... 

 Walk, slip, & fall... Wish I had it all, finger tips dig into the wall.. It doesn't faze me that the world is crazy... Purging on my heart without the right surgery, the therapy doesn't help me.. I'm The Burning One anticipating, patiently waiting, for the taking....
