my book on fire

i have a confession to make  
i never came here to write  
nor read
at least that's what i'm telling myself  

i'm here  
because winter fell    
and i became lost    
somewhere i've been before  
there's a disarray of clouds  
condensing over my mind  
so is it a coincidence    
that words rain red over me?   
here comes echoes of my book  
of untold stories  
so many thoughts tasted  
dreams swallowed  
nightmares poured out   
i should never read them out loud  
but, i'm telling you, darling   
i'm a burning ghost  
it's time you set my pages on fire  
and send my soul to smoke  
until i find home again
