i lit myself on fire only to keep you warm and when you got too

i lit myself on fire
only to keep you warm

and when you got too hot
you had no qualms about
putting out my light

you were the wind and i was a willow
submissive, bending to your force
branches torn and whipped, forgotten
in the wake of you

i was icarus and you were daedalus
except you gave me no warnings
and i was willing to your every wish
and so you sent me flying 
into the hottest star

before anyone says anything i am well aware that that is entirely not how the story of icarus and daedalus goes but that's what 'except' means and that's why it's ironic. bc they give no sh,,,ts
