Putting A Flame to It All Part 5

Those three little words that I could barely make you say

I don’t know if me telling you was a mistake

But I would rather that I never did

You forgot what those meant

When you were angry

You did not prove the words

When you constantly hung up on me

Unreturned phone calls

Messages with days delay

Didn’t really say those words

For all the times I stood alone

Waiting for you to come by my side

Unbeknownst to me

You were already in the arms of another

I can’t take back

The words I told you

But I can get let go of the memories

I can burn them away

Putting a Flame to It All Part 3

I was afraid that

No matter what I did

I’d see you

I’d hear your voice

Visiting places we went

Would cause the memories

To rush back into my head

That was my biggest fear

It almost consumed me

I had to take control

I had to move on

I did

Now I don’t think about you

You’re a distant memory

And the fear is gone

Putting A Flame to It All Part 2

Remember you said you cared?

I do.

You said you’d never leave

I was told by you

That I was

Everything you ever wanted

And more

I was an upgrade

Better than all the rest

You professed so much

My foolish self

Believed it all

I should have known better

Don’t know why I’m stressing for

Because nothing you said

Matters anymore

Putting A Flame to It All Part 1

You promised me forever

Then you showed me just how short it was

You said that we would always be together

Just another lie you told

So I am burning everything

All the memories of

All the things that remind me of you

The first one is

That together forever

Was never true

Fireproof

Relationships are not fireproof
Sometimes we end up getting burned
We need to be able to walk out the fire
With a few new lessons learned
Fires can be things that are severe
Saying things that in the ears constantly chime
Some fires are mild and easily pass by
For example not spending enough time

Fireproof doesn’t mean fires will never come
Just that you are able to withstand
You should always be ready for anything
Things do not always go as planned
Love does not make relationships
It should be the other way around
Many times relationships are ended
Just because love is not quickly found

There are parasites that attack relationships
See the love and try to take it away
If you are not careful and protect yourself
You offer to them an open buffet
Be slow to anger and quicker to listen
This will give you much success
Take a second to see the other side
So the whole situation can be assessed

The eyes will always wander away
Try to stop them as hard as you can
But as much attention as you pay to the eyes
Pay even more attention to your hands
One of the double edges swords in life
Can come in the form of friend’s advice
At times it will help you out
Other times you pay a price

Love is not an easy thing to keep
It takes alot of time and determination
Love is not a house you stay in
From it there is no vacation
When you are in a relationship
Alot of energy is required
You never leave your partner behind
Especially in a fire

Don’t worry about the wounds
If you believe enough you wont lose
At times it may be hard to do
But if you find someone you adore
You’ll find out that love is not at all a fight
It’s something worth fighting for
