I swore I’d watch this place burn to the ground


See you behind the fire as it danced


Our broken hearts cried out but they were bound


Inside their cage the enemy advanced


These empty streets can't nullify my rage


I sit alone and try to think despite


I pray my fears will in someway assuage


But until then, come sit with me tonight.


And suddenly as we walk down this road


I wouldn’t have it any other way


The thoughts that caused your spirit to erode


Can't touch us as we watch the wake of day


This blushing sky behind a lost-not-found


I promise you I’ll burn it to the ground


This poem is about: 
My family
