Heartlessly foolish
I don’t really mean it
when the hatred you harbored
was kept like a secret
you lost me in the ashes
in the burn of the phoenix 
now as P!nk once sang,
“just give me a reason”.

In the darkness you whispered
in shades of red and blue
“what do you need darling?”
we did not allude.
to the temptress and her coming
her ever-longing subdued.

To the beat of your broken
and to the melody of my ache
was this fantasy a farce?
Do you mean the words you say?
So when you can’t fall asleep at night,
and wonder what’s at stake
remember the girl you saw burning
and left lying in your wake.
