I spent Valentine's by myself, well, no, I pretty much drove my grandparents around for their V day date. Which is sweet according to some people, but really, it was just sad as I spent the time reflecting on past flames and wondering how they're doing now.

02/14/2014 (Friday)- An Old Flame
My heart was stolen at first sight,
a flame keeping me up at night
a flame I could not control.
So I gave her a piece of me,
a small share of my heart
a small part of my life.
I gave her more of it,
believing it would keep her
believing she would be mine.
But you can never keep a flame,
it burned a light not just for one
it burned the pieces that I gave.
My heart drowned in flames,
ever since it kept all the blood for itself
ever since she kept all the little pieces.
