Lone Flame

He came with fire in his eyes

the flames that would consume me

until i was no longer mine but his

the liar in him told me he was mine

and for once i let a man in

in to start a flame that burnt so strong

dreams and hope arose from it

but little did i know i was the only one who could see them

i fought hard and long to keep his flame burning

but watch it subside as mine blazed with intensity

and now i stand alone with a flame

an emptness where a heart once resided

without any ownership of myself
