My fingers are torches
This heart a flame
Exhaling only smoke
When my lungs decide to breatheThere are embers smoldering 
As I walk against the coals
Cinders of the life 
I set ablaze

I burn down every moment
With a single touch
Every dream is covered in ash
Hopes no longer flicker in the fire

My eyes are stained red
Bloodshot and drunk
My temper an inferno
Waiting for life to fuel my fire

Every step is a scorched step
Imprinted within the earth
Nothing is sacred
My breath burns

Leaving scars on those
Who came to close
Loving a girl
With a matchstick heart
Filled with fuel

A fire in her heart
And no control ~
