Reflection

lyrics

I am a child,
born of the marriage
of dependency and reckless intent,
giver of messages that could only be crafted
by the heart's inner deepest lament
for the things I've done, the battles I've won,
even if at the cost of my friends,
for the loss of love that came as a result
of the very regrets
that only made me stronger in the end.

But you were my chance to survive,
the one fleeting I have to keep alive,
with the spark you've ignited inside
that starts a fire the second your skin touches mine.

I've watched the certainties in life
turn out to be false claims
and watched my sanity come unglued,
but you have proven to be
the most worthy kind of happiness I've ever pursued.

You were my chance to survive,
the one fleeting I have to keep alive,
with the spark you've ignited inside
that starts a fire the second your skin touches mine.
