The Moth’s Tale

You hurt me like you get paid to do so,
Like its the only thing you are good at, and you don’t want to let go,
But hurt me more,
Because by now I know,
That its the only way to keep you with me 
I am the moth that found love in the grip of fire,
Burning slowly
In you
Even if its for the shortest period of time,
I will be that extra spark in your light
When you are tired and dying,
When your beauty is flickering and fading,
When you are sad and lonely
And when you learn what love means,
I know you will remember me,
The lunatic who loved you endlessly
For this love will not die with my body
It will stay
In everything that makes you feel special in every way,
In the poems you could not throw away, because you knew they could not have been written for anyone else,
In the spaces that did not demand you to change 
In everything that makes you, you
I will be there
