slow burn

could this be forever?

no matter what, inseparable

but then one thing happened

and it started a slow burn

you said something that stuck

and I spiraled

uncontrollable, in a free fall to earth

when I wake up, you’ll be gone

forgetting all that was said

and I’ll learn to forget too

the slow burn

of an extinguished flame
