I close my eyes
Feel my heart on fire,
coal set scorching in subterranean mine.
Now, must I pluck out
this fire burning , siphon this out
these drooling embers?
I am not to be blamed. Please,
I didn't start it, I only kept it ablaze,
with that tiny spark you blew in.
I love these golden flecks
they hold me in a fiery fantasy, a fairy
with wings of love and a sparkling magic wand.
Look, can't you see,
our dark silhouettes an entwined beauty
drenched in the heat of unguarded love ..
I am the moth
drawn to your passion's flame
dancing wild as tomorrow never comes.
Protect me, from your fire,
this golden trance I love so dear,
to dust may I burn
in embers you feed my heart!
Happily so...,what if tomorrow never comes?
