where’s my lighter?

 

The queen burned down her own kingdom 

Overrun with foolishness

She was homeless/hoeless 

Far from hopeless though

She laughed slightly and smiled 

The queen burned down her own kingdom

 She stood just close enough to feel the warmth of the flickering flames and not get burnt

Bending down, she lit her cigarette on the walls of her burning kingdom 

Unafraid of cancer, because we’re all terminal anyway, she inhaled and exhaled 

Fuck it

Let it burn

Let it burn

Let it burn 

She owned that it wasn’t built on anything worth saving 

Foundation fractaled by faux “I’ll love you forevers” flung from mouths that made mockeries of marriage 

Unions made useless 

Committed only to not being committed 

Lessons learned

Bridges burned 

The queen burned down her own kingdom

Let it Burn

to be continued…
