Burn This Place Down - Poem by Alyssa Lynn

You’re like the match and I’m the flame we know things will never be the same. We could burn this place down. We have something dangerous going on; we have something hazardous watch your back. We might, we might just side attack. Caution there’s something going on, any second something could go wrong. Close your eyes and take a breath, jump in and try to guess what what’s going to happen next. Let’s do it all, let’s live it up, cuz bottom line “times almost up”. The clock is ticking against us screaming “grow up the real world is just a few paces away.” When we return to this place years from now and feel the memories will forever last in these walls. We’ll know where it all started. You’re like the match and I’m the flame we know once we cross the line things will never be the same. We could burn down this place. When there’s that much chemistry a little explosion is evident here and there.

    I think I like this one a bit better than not existant. Especially if I'm not just letting my head get in the way of what the real message and who the match is. (it'd be better if I had clarification bc I'm kinda slow lol) I definitely like the chemistry line and how you used to a match and flame in this way. I also like the 'let's do it all....' line. Another good one BlackBird ;) 9.0 (Report) Reply
