Words To Ash

My embers burn / A dark fire roars
My suicidal war / A blaze of words

I wrote this for you...
The old me really wanted you to read it
To tell you the truth...
Of how I came to be beyond broken

But I had to keep it
Because I'll never see you again
So my wounds remain hidden
A letter deprived of hate, I forgave us in vain

I'm trying to undo what you have done
Even if its just a placebo effect
This is me trying to “move on”
From this smothering resentment
Confessions turn into infernos
You crushed my faith
A villain disguised as a hero
My lungs starts to shake
The sinner is attending church tomorrow
While this saint is endlessly praying for strength
My soul surges / A red sky clears
My resolve emerges / A cure for tears

I've journeyed through the flames...
The new me knows the reasons for your trespasses
And the way you try and cleanse your internal shame
You are the reaper of innocence

Closure drawn from a scarred heart
I will not stay in your prison
No more nights spent awake in the dark
I will not serve your sentence

The raging fires in my eyes finally burnt out
I will set ablaze the pain that was once bound
And these ashes of yours will fall down
...Scattering justice...all around...
Even though I know you won't read this
This is for you, Ash
