Light the Flame

I’ve dreamt a
Thousand nightmares,
Cried a thousand tears,
Begged the goddess for release
When my fragile heart
Could take no more.
And when all hope was lost,
And I had given up
I saw your face
And felt a whisper
Of your love
Sing the echo of my heart.

You would light the flame in me,
To keep me safe from my own
And I would no longer be
Afraid to love and be loved,
Walking through dawn’s light.
Because you would be there
To wipe my tears,
And hold my hand,
And turn my midnights
Into sunrise.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
