When you see my face, is my name running through your head on loop, on loop, on loop, on loop?
Your shining eyes and pretty little smile press the words I want to say into my skin and down my throat.
You've taken my light and strained it; I'm turning into shadows, my lungs burn with smoke from the fire in my brain.
When you hear my voice, do you feel the turmoil that I do? I want to be close to you, but you'll burn me for standing too close to the fire.
Shadows, you are my sun no longer. Satellite, alien, obstruction in the sky. How can I escape you when all I want to do is hold you close to me, and hear your heartbeat?
