Burn My Heart In Flames

April 10, 2008
By Lea Duttweiler, Guttenberg, IA

The days grow colder.
The nights grow older.
Here i sit inside the scorching flames.
Smolder me before i get out of control.

The only thing i dream is you.
Kill the flame.
The only thing i see is us.
Douse the fire.
Before it gets too huge to fight.
The only thing i dream is you.

The longer i wait the harder it becomes.
My heart turns colder.
The flames to embers.
Then i see your face again.

The only thing i dream is you.
Killing the flame.
The only thing i see is us.
Please douse the fire
Before it gets to huge to fight.
And the only thing i dream is you.

Frozen inside.
Your smile melts ice.
Daggers for eyes cut deep in my soul.
The bleeding subsides.

The only thing i dream is you.
The flame starts to die.
The only thing i see is us.
Water on the fire
It shrinks into oblivion
The only thing i dream is you.

The days grow older.
The nights grow colder.
Hidden embers glow alone.
Burn into the sky.
Still my dream is you.
