The Arsonist...He's Dead Now...

*note: rewrite of The Tragedy of the Arsonist

There was nothing complicated about it
Just a box of matches
Few gallons of gasoline
It was so simple
Surely even he could do it

[Watch it burn!]
[Watch me burn!]

Something sadistic about his smile
Something nervous in his hand
(What's this? Regret?)

[Burn it away!]
[Burn everything!]

(Embers, embers)
Light memories on fire
(Ashes, ashes)
Pain erase pain

Taking pride in the flames
Finding joy in the flames
A sick smile before he burned away

Ironic the sky lamented his sorrow
Shed tears he never could
Yellow suits in red trucks came
And washed away the remains
Lights still flashing
"There's no one inside the building"

She stands alone
No one will move her
Eyes glazed over
Ashes remain

He stole her heart

(The flames took his)

Haunting memories
Twisted him; became
What he never wanted

She wanted to help
She tried to help
She wanted to help

[Burn it away!]
[Burn me away!]
[Burn everything!]
[Everything!]
(To ashes)
The blaze dies
Down...

I think what you said was very logical. But, think on this,
what if you were to write a killer title? I ain't saying your content is not good., however suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean "The Arsonist...He's Dead Now.
.." is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and note how they write post headlines to get people to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about what you've written. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
