You cannot jump from a burning heart

I put your heart on fire,

like a swiss watchmaker

I make it tick.

Not to slow not to

fast, the combination

to your heart is only

known by me.

The labyrinth of

your unconsuous is

where I operate,

tunnels where wise man

go mad, and mad men

become wise.

Your eyes is my

mirror to your soul.

But dont ask me

to extinguish your

fire, reset your

heartbeat, or

give you the

map to your


Because I cannot

break the mirror

of your soul,

and you cannot jump from

a heart on fire.
