Carelessness causes fire
Carelessness causes fire.
It also causes other losses.
Pay attention to what you’ve got.
Things get broken, misplaced when they’re not cared for.
Gone, forgotton in a wince of pain and loneliness.
Do I look like I’ll beg for your forgiveness?
Straight answers with long faces.
This place kept safe with no disgraces.
Soulless shapes like empty suitcases.
I’d give myself a new shape to dictate a new fate but it’s too late.
I asked a million time why we’re here every few weeks, what can we change?
It’s heart breaking and just stays the same.
It’s the no flame game waiting for a stage to reset, get rearranged that’s left stagnating.
What’s left is half a heart beating.
