Lit 

 

The search for beauty

in the fires of your heart, 

start at warmth of it and never ends

 

At its inception,

the masterful makers of heart fires

marked you out as extraordinary 

 

 captivated by the feeling

well before I see it burning in your eyes 

 

Take me with you

light me up like a burning man effigy

explode my heart into a million stars

to chase across the skies

with one simple yess

a doorway

to a thousand and more exhilarating deaths

and rebirths 

 

Set me alight

with all the colours of your love

Colors and stars and fires, oh my

Make me an effigy
Burn my soul in your memory
Show me the light to see
The path back to your sympathy
Take me away to space
And show me your subtle grace
Resonate my heartstrings' strum
Echoing through the thrum
While we march to our own drum
And hold me as I come undone


Paint me a memory
Show it off for all to she
So they'll know what it means to be
Etched by your energy
Sing me a song so sweet
Call me to feed your need
Hold me til the storm recedes
Soaked in possibility


As the stars fill the night sky
Remember, they were put there to shine
And as you stare into the night
Remember, you still hold the light
