April's Bonfire

from Perfect Tears by Color Theory



Do you think of me?
I remember you every spring
April matinees
Rainy days and the flowers they bring
The thorny sting
You asked me then
In a year from now where will we be?
And I didn’t know
But I never wanted to be

Just another man that you once admired
Burned to ashes in your bonfire
April dear, you will always be
Someone special in my history

You cleanse your soul
By destroying your diary
A ritual
Setting fire to pictures of me
To set you free
A sacrifice
But the memories still smolder within
Now what will you do
When you want to see me again?

I burned you too
Back in our day
I never knew
That love could cause such pain.
