Your own fire

From the ashes you rose?

So happy and joyful with a new man

Another wedding, a new set of vows

Back on track with your life plan

You blame me for ruining your life

Hold me responsible for the fire

Claim you were nothing but a good wife

Say I burned our marriage on a pyre

But you built the fire, log by log:

a log called disrespect

a log called control

a log called contempt

a log called dismissive

a log called sarcasm

a log called neglect

a log called demands

a log called unappreciated

a log called selfishness

a log called indifference

You made me take all the blame

Said it was all my lust and desire

While I may have set the flame

You are the one who built the fire
