My Combustable Heart - Poem by Mimi Mata

If you decide to turn from my combustable heart
And the cinders of my words let loose,

remember I had to burn the burden of this noose;
To set myself free
To set myself free.
And if the air around you, has your stomach churn
Please do not allow me to burn,
Life's lessons in turn, will show you a greater meaning
And maybe my fire will start ceasing;
Perhaps it will start ceasing...
And by nightfall we can watch the stars as they are increasing
For, in the distance my fire would have disputed into a wavering moon,
By twilight the half peeked sun, and the blood of our souls by afternoon.
So remember this:

If you should decide to turn from my combustable heart
And the cinders of my words let loose,
Remember I had to burn the burden of this noose;
To set ourselves free...
To set ourselves free.

    ...If you decide to turn from my combustable heart
    And the cinders of my words let loose,

    remember I had to burn the burden of this noose;
    To set myself free
    To set myself free.

    To set ourselves free...
    To set ourselves free

    Mimi, I loved this one, esp. the repetition of the main theme... it's like a warning, letting him know that your heart burns yet, can consume all without a second thought... Brilliant! Great Ink! ; -)
