A Letter to the Girl Drowning in Nostalgia

You need to stop 
Stop trying to build bridges out of ashes
You spent so much time 
Setting things a blaze 
Did you ever consider the reasons 
You left everything back there 
And you rebuilt 
Moved forward 
Moved forward 
You burnt these bridges so you couldn’t turn back 
Stop fucking trying to build bridges out of ashes 
You’ll just end up staring 
Back at broken places
And empty spaces 
Like the ones between your fingers 
And you’ll never make it back 
To your highest low.
