Stratosphere

Written by: Stefania Carmen Misaila

I don’t know which way is up or down…
Everything’s just white or black or brown.
I’m trying so hard to find those shades of gray,
But I don’t know if I can make it through this day…

You’re atmosphere is all I’m breathing in…
And all you do is take me through this spin.
I want to grab the darkest shade of moon
As I know that you’ll be rising soon.

You shine even brighter that the sun…
And every time I’m near you I come undone.
Piercing through this lie I call a shield,
You burn inside me till my heart becomes unsealed…

Gravity is not going to hold us up for long…
The love I hold inside is getting strong.
Breaking through my last layer of self-defense,
You orbit within my line of passion so intense.
