There You Are

There you are standing in the light.

I stand still holding my emotions tight.

There you are fixated in my eyes.

It is easy to fall for the beautiful lies.

The light that surrounds you is made of fire.

You are not the good angel but the liar.

There you are standing in the light.

I burn to ashes as I hold you tight.

I could blame you but is not your fault.

I had the option, I decided not to halt.

It is no one’s error; it is our nature,

For you to be dressed on fire,

And for me to burn like paper.

Loneliness creeps in with desire,

And we embrace together in the light

Without worrying of what makes it shine.
