Burn me up, my soul erupt
crush my bones with each embrace
liquefy my loneliness
leaving lines you can erase

Sear my lids with lighter fluid
scorched from lips of honeyed dew
smelt your carnal fire in me
forged in flames love's pain imbues

Render me so tenderly
re-use, re-cycle, reduce
mould me out of molten lead
your hot truth I can't refuse

Cripple me, my past adrift
upon your vulcanic shore
give me hope and I shall walk
reborn from torment's sweet chore
