the trees are ignited.
vulnerability didn’t get us anywhere.
just heartbreak and lies.
the animals are running away
putting up their boundaries again.
come too close and they’ll scatter,
like falling leaves and branches
hitting the flames and combusting.
you told me you loved me.
made me sit and think about if i loved you too.
when did love ever get us anywhere?
all it leaves is scars and questions of “what was meant to be”
i said i wanted to experience love. heartbreak.
and now that i’m here and its one sided im not sure why.
the trees are igniting.
my trust is up in flames.
before the fire engulfs it all.
