Is a Waste

The love that she gave

Was simply too much for this world to handle

And with every tiny sip

She made it disappear

And in the blink of an eye

She’d forgotten how it felt

To love

But mostly

To be loved in return

Take a look at her now

Strong, impatient

Loyal, and faithful

Waiting for the one

To put the pieces together

To make her sad song

A symphony

To make her dark nights

Into morning kisses

And the morning kisses

Into wildfires

She would have burned the world for you

But the world could not catch her

And yet here you stand

Longing for something

That’s been yours
