She burned through you like an incense,
Until there was nothing left at all.
The wooden stick was all you had left,
But you threw it away.
I will search everywhere for the remains,
and I’ll keep it close.
I will soak it in oil and light aflame,
so your love won’t have to feel the pain
of burning out again.
