Ashes to Ashes

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
 
My heart was consumed by lust
My heart ate up by desire
My heart burned upon a pyre
 
Love is lost, kindness gone
This soul lays inert
The heart beats no longer
Last breath exhales
 
I wasted too much time
I have imbibed
I have lived 
I have died
I have defeat in my mind
 
In this winding path
Lust laid me low
Desire buried me deep
My funeral pyre burned hot
The dust flew here and there
The witnesses coughed in despair
 
Folly is my name
Tart my moniker
Innocence I spurned
Criminal my hands do bear
Lost in flight I exist
Misjudged misunderstood
I bear witness through it all
