Don’t play with your pain.
Sweet one it’s all consuming
ruthless fire which slowly
consumes the heart which lets it stay!
Once allowed to stay longer than it should,
it will make its home in a heart
convincing the heart it’s an essence
then it’s flames will spread around.
It slowly consumes the entire being
turns a living, thriving life
into a handful of dust and ashes.
Its raging flames never stop burning!
Don’t let it linger in your heart.
Either extinguish it with love
or just throw it out of your life
and move ahead without giving it chance!
