Ashes Of Pain

Through the screen of smoke I see
Ashes of pain that belong to me
Fire so hot could not burn it away
This pain of steel is here to stay
As I laid the fuel around
Seeking relief I thought I had found
I saw the torture before my eyes
I sparked a match the flames did rise
As I watched it burn away
Bitter thoughts in my head did stay
Flames of fire could not reach inside
From the hurt and confusion I long to hide
The house of pain now is gone
I thought it would help, I guess I was wrong
In the embers I walked around
My ashes of pain all over the ground
For a while it felt so good
Watching it burn as there I stood
Those good feelings soon surpassed
The house is now gone
But my pain still lasts
