Branded, hot and burning into my flesh,
your name upon my tongue and skin,
like fire in my soul.
Branded, down deep and scarred,
seared forever into my memory and heart.
I'm branded, only you have the power to hurt me this way.
Branded, like cattle,
you've made your mark upon me,
labeled for your purposes.
Branded, the blistering heat of your adoration
bestowed upon me in a fervor unprecedented.
Branded, your identity personified
in the ashes left of my scorched heart.
I was branded by your adoration and love,
until I burned to nothingness.
