House On Fire

House On Fire

Let me gather my bones from the bonfire
Let me bury them among the cabbage patches
That grew from firtile soil
Enriched with ashes.
We clicked like a lighter
A roaring little house on fire
A couldran of smoke
That would choke us with love
Ripping our hearts out
And toasting them for each other
A sacrifice we made
Knowing we could never live again
Or love another
We loved each other enough to ignite the globe
We burned so bright
That when the fire died out
There was nothing left of us
