Fire was burning
everything it touched
and yet she still reached

Reached for those flames
she thought to be beautiful
and thought harmless

Harmless to human touch
those flames were not
and the girl learned.

Learned that she was stupid
to ignore her sense
and reach for beauty

Beauty is just a disguise
for the harsh reality
of this cold world

World shrouded in evil
disguised in beauty
will burn you like fire
