Ash-stained lips

I met a girl with ash stained lips,
ash from her burning cigar,
ash from her burning soul,
floating in midnight air,
settling on the heart of a monster
disguised as a lover.
I am a boy
with an ash stained heart
ash from the letters she burnt.
letters to her.
letters I wrote.
letters that told her,
to come back home.
