alight

You say hold to the light

I am honestly trying

Even as the light is dying

And darkness nearly consumes me

Still I feel a fire that burns

In the deepest part of me

A flame that only ever seems

To be extinguished

Don’t be fooled

I am not consumed forever here

Its just when I stand so near to ice

It seems as though I am frozen too

Maybe that is why I cry

When you and I are near

I am the one speaking of things

Shed in tears

As my eyes brim

On the long drive home

This is the truth

I am not far from the light

Even when the world inside is dark

It is just that for a while

My spark got dimmed

By trying to lay claim to being

Everything for you

And we both know

That is

Just not

Possible
