I’ll Be Your Villain

When night comes,
And the fire rises,
I hear your voice
Calling my name.

I see in your eyes,
The longing and
The need.

The hope that burns
Hotter than the sun,
But the panic that
Holds you back.

Because you have been
Damaged and burnt beyond
Recognition.

You fear touching the inferno
That is our love,
Because you may
Fall into the smoke
And leave what’s left
Of your heart behind.

But, oh, how my name,
On your tongue,
Brings you peace.
Raises the temperature
Of your passion,
And ignites the spark
Within.

I am the solace you seek,
When the world becomes
Too big.
The warm glow,
When it
Becomes unbearably cold.

So I’ll be your villain,
And steal your heart,
I’ll take what belongs to me.

Because your love is the
Cool taste in my mouth.
The one that quenches my thirst.

Your love is what I desire.
In blood and in flames.

So let me
And set fire to the cold
Empty space inside your
Chest.

Leave your fear on the pyre,
And walk into oblivion with me.

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.
