The Sun

(Turn on music at the bottom for the full experience)

When I behold you, I see the sun
You’re like the rays beating down on lapping water
Warming the surface and streaming through to caress the coldest depths of my sorrow

It may never be down here what it could up there, trapped within the forboding shadows of my mind
But because I know you, I know warmth all the same
Clouds may pass and block the path
But still you’ll come another day

If I transformed to Icarus, knowing what would be when I flew too close to you, I’d do it anyway – I may burn, but you will shine on
Its just that embracing for but a moment would be better than never feeling close to you at all

Yet.. maybe I am the sun
A sun that’s blazing reach burns you, beautiful you venturing too close to me
What then? Do you not feel the same when I am winged and soaring higher…
If I hurt you with an overwhelming essence – red hot…
Sides of a coin

A different me, a stronger me might be the person to protect you from such scorch that I too would willingly endure, reversed
But I need you too much, selfishly – I am not another me

Knowing you best
You’d stubbornly refuse to leave me alone in the desert I’m creating
Depths of shadowed waters, drying up all the same

So I let you
