Crashing Into Love

Love Blossoms

We collided and the sparks flew

in the midst of our crash course.

I look back and see the flashing lights

and hear the sirens telling me

this is an accident.

But my eyes are blind

to the damage right in front of me:

my heart is beyond repair.

If this kills me,

I’d rather be dead

then without you.

Destiny says we belong together

but not anymore.

Why did we run into disaster

for it only to become a hit-and-run?

I’m not strong enough

to be victimized by love again;

I can’t fight for this

if it will just crash and burn.

Will you save me

when I can’t even save myself?

Will you pull me out of the wreckage

and breathe love to me?
