Sunburn

Deliciously deceiving smile
Emits a spectrum of light emotion.
You are worshipped and feared by all
Dictator through and of all seasons
But you can take your toll at times, you overdo it.
And prepare us for the battle
Of hopelessly empty days.
We think we can absorb you,
Be you for a moment, and perhaps 
Even keep you for a while?

Below our bronze-plated armor
Our skin blisters and burns with the
Anticipation of tomorrow
Through listless dance
We indulge in your temptation, we give in.
Some things just aren’t forever...
And I can’t believe in you anymore 
You’ll be gone before we know it

Nine months later is your rebirth
And another time to shine
With your arrival comes relief,
And with your passing, regrets.
