Smolder (sequel to Fire)

I would take it all away, blend your sorrows into mine
Mix them together and cry for you, too
make all the verses rhyme
I miss you when the weight of life takes you away from me
I’d kiss you but I retreat in fear, I run from what cannot be
I retreat from you, withdraw from your power; allow my heart to grow colder
Douse the fire with water’s shower, watch it die a yearning smolder
