Thanks To You Will I Ever Be More Than Dust

You built me up made, made me trust you. But now you’re the nightmare that plays even in the direct ray of light. You make me fight not to call you because you are like a fire who made me burn so bright Your glowing Tyz – yeh nothing to do with me but the little fire I let inside At first nothing but a bit of warmth to find comfort in But you find everyone noticing the light You say it's meaningless but can't hide the smile - just some comfort in the cold gloomy nights Really the fire is burning through everything inside As you feel the heat beginning to fade all you can do is beg it to stay I thought I wasn’t this kind of girl Praying every day it finds something new to latch on I thought I was more than some burnt up coal – hoping for some yellow ambers to become alight The fire finds something new to latch on As it always does But I always thought it’d be another part of me A chapter in our us But maybe I am just summed up as dust Since the fire left I’ve tried so hard to burn Flipping page to page Lifting weights on weights Going from candle to match But you’re the only one who will ever let me burn so bright But comfort in the cold isn’t easy when you're burnt to dust Any little wind now has the power to rupture these ever so fragile pieces of dust

Thanks for sharing this. Welcome to Poetry Soup. I welcome you with the love of the Lord, expressed by John 3:16 of the Bible, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." God bless you.

This is tragically beautiful. I felt every bit in my heart because I too was lit up by a fire so one of a kind
