Love's Escape

My light dims as it attempts to stay bright while trying to guide for someone,
The truth of the matter is once that light is out everything else is done.
A light can only show the way but only if that person whats to be found,
But if no one ever uses that light then the user will be left alone feeling like a clown.

People have a way of showing when they truly want something or just want out,
They also have a way of letting their fear control their emotions and the creation of doubts. hurt me and I haven't done anything to give you a reason to,
Though we both know I had every right if I chose to.

Loving a person with no catches seems to never be good enough anymore,
And a good man has to be twisted when there's a woman he actually adored.
That is what it seems like so that is what it must be,
Love has become not an act of emotion but an act that requires a fee.

Those who can't handle it will fear and escape by any means,
Fear is only a state of mind but to the untrained it will affect all their genes.
I don't expect everyone to possess the same amount of strength,
But I do expect for people to at least try to their very length.

Open my heart...I did and look where it got me,
In a case and a world full of trouble with a bold, italic, and a capital T.
I vow to never give up but for now I shall give in,
Give in only to remain alone at the moment while I try to succeed in this life of sin.

The key that opened my heart will always be cherished within,
I pray one day that key will return to open and recreate my light once again but for
now...fin (French for end)
