Maiden of Ash

I know you will come
When the stars in my eyes
Would have been snuffed
Asking me for some light

I will ask you then
Why did you not come
When I used to light lamps
Along your way

Then I will turn away
Unfeeling, heartless
Leaving you alone
In your darkness

You will cry then
You will tug at my hand
You will beg for some mercy
You will hold me tight

But in your embrace
I will wither away
Like a Maiden of Ash
Lifeless and wistful

Then at your feet
Would be the embers
Of my burning desires
Now turned cold
