Poetry On Odyssey: Fireworks

We burn too fast and burn too bright, and we extinguish whatever is left of us.

Poetry On Odyssey: Fireworks

we are both victims in this era of forgetting

where bodies are nothing but containers for the soul

where feelings can be easily let go and replaced

she's like a rose full of thorns

threatening to hurt those who do her wrong

but her sensitivities hurt those who care

we are both trapped in this prison together

where happy endings would never be a reality

for a moment in time

we were living the dreams

where the concept of time didn't matter

as long as she was by my side

with my heart on her sleeve

but we could never grow old together

she said that perhaps we didn't love hard enough

she's wrong oh so wrong

we are both like fireworks

we burn too fast and burn too bright

and we extinguish whatever is left of us

only leaving behind scarred souls, bruised pride and deceit
