ashes

Trapt in a place
locked in by my heart
so many places to go
but there's no place to start

but that's how it goes
it always seems the same
the door that could lead to happiness
is blocked by a single flame

It started as just a matchlight
but now engulfs half the door
but things may get better
so i'll wait here a bit more

But that fire grows higher
and there is no water in sight
the darkness takes over
and I'm stuck without light

Now I sit here
burned with regret
because i could never be satisfied
with only what i could get
