The injustice of pouring all that you are
So lovingly into the molten veins of another
Who failed to mention they had no intention
Of escaping their own veiled destruction.
Steadily they devour your revelatory light
Until you come to realise you’re all but extinguished
And left at the core of the searing toxic flames
You unknowingly helped to ignite.
Enveloped by fumes you prayed would never overcome
The delicious heat that draws your bodies together
But now it scorches the fragments of your desiccated soul
And the precious alchemy you both created evaporates
With one last loving beat of your heart.
