Flame in our eyes

The flame in our eyes
From the distant burning fire brings us together,
Together under a clear, shady sky
Where stars blanket the surface to an unknown reality
And as we watch the ashes crumble and the embers fall-
You caught my every breath and stole every beat of my fading heart

The summer nights are beautiful; complete; full of clarity
Because I can see the smile on your face
And feel the twinkle in your eye where we sit…under the sky
As we seek an unforgettable truth
That we fear to speak because of fear itself
Fear to discover what is hidden under our skin

Each fire set ablaze by your fingers
Is just another step to my emotions,
Emotions which are lost, but not undeniable
And I understand the beauty within this burning sensation
As I feel the smoke cover my face with a new hope
And each smoky breath I inhale is another pathway- pathway to a tangled mess

This tangled mess I feel is an uncontrollable feeling
And you hinder its presence in the blink of an eye
Which I can’t help but follow because I know you’ll be there;
Be there to catch me as I fall to the ground
And as I fall, you grasp my hand and never let go,
But this feeling is not pain…

What do we feel?
Is there anything at all?
Because I don’t want to fuck things up…
It must be a neutral feeling-
I know there’s nothing there and you know there’s nothing here
So we meet at a dead end, but never let go

I look to you as you look to me
Because we understand each other
The very touch of your skin to mine is breathtaking
And I wonder if it does the same for you?
I make you laugh as you make me laugh
As our eyes meet… in the distant flame

Every fire, every flame, every ember, every ash is a gorgeous beauty;
A beauty so breathtaking I can’t deny this flame in our eyes
