Burning the Bridge

Tributes to Lovers

Over the last few months

I had a revolving door of men

fulfilling my lustful needs

and keeping me company.


I tried so desperately to use 

these men to erase you from my skin,

but it didn't work 

because here you are still.


My mind plays tricks on me,

makes me believe your lies,

that your wanton passion is 

for more than just my body.


You heightened my wants yet also

spark my emotions like none other;

I yearn for more than you spare

and you never yield to my appeal.


I have to burn this bridge

from your body to mine,

turn my desires to ash

because these tears will engulf me.
