moth to your flame

I grow up but never away

I'm a moth to only your flame

When your flame went out

I just circled in darkness, but never away

Towards nothing but the memory


Sometimes I dream the burning flame

Sometimes I read the lightening

Sometimes I remember the warmth

Sometimes I playback the light written in your name


I've grown up but not away

You're the only one who knew me

When I could be a moth and a lion in the same day

Where I could cry and drown in one word

Where I could pretend and lie in one scene

Where I could fall and fly with my own breath

But never really breath unless you held me


I'm living lost

I'm dreaming awake

I'm surrounded alone

I'm searching for the mark you left on me

but when the burns heal, am I just me?
