For Love 8

even here in this room
if they all want me like fire
they think they can tease a little love from me
its all wrong my love
i cant face the stinging 
of their lust
we all look so good from afar
but u are promising to stay
they see me 
but they dont know me the way u do
they think of me
but they dont want to keep me
u are not fire 
u are pure warmth
u are not lust
u are pure soul
and here in our room
i feel nothing but the comfort of forever
the protection of truth
the realness of your love
i dont want to face the toxic flames of the world
i want to curl up and let u guard my dreams
i dont want anything outside the doors of ur heart
i just want to sleep in your embrace
we all look so good from far away
and u are saying that u will stay
i wonder if u have overlooked my flaws
or if u truly love me despite them
i am so lost in the in-between
but when u leave me
i still feel u here
in every fiber of this life
dont go away
dont ever go away
i just want u 
i just need u to stay
