You Thought She Was Your Salvation

She touched your hand 

And your anger faded away

She hugged you 

And you melted 

But like the sun on a nightwalkers skin 

Ashes to ashes 

You died from within

You felt her like the sun

A warmth you hadn’t felt in years 

She embodied hope 

But she also embodied all your fears 

A chain reaction

From fingertip to the tips of your toes

Ashes to ashes 

What you thought was your light 

Was really death at your door
