Burning for More

Allow me to awaken

The temptation

Let me seduce you

With the flame

I don't come cheap

And don't last long

You'll empty your wallet

For I can't be wrong

Inhale me

Breathe in my toxicity

I'll drag you down

To places you've never been

Start with your clothes

Tear them to rags

Then I'll plant vermins

On the waves of your breath

My black soul will haunt you

For years to come

As it impales your skin

Danger is

What you can't see

On the inside

What a treat for me

Will you choose life?

You can't put me down

How you'll run

How you'll cry

Is simply the mission for I

You snuff me out

Again and again

But never the smoke within

You're only

Burning

For more
