Burning Down the City

September 6, 2009

I'd burn this city down
Just to see you smile.

I'd keep your secrets,
I'd hide your tears from the world.
Whispered words and uninterrupted

And be someone that you love:

Eyes will sync
And smile--
Picture perfect.

I'll open your eyes,
Let you peer into
Clear waters.

To people unknown
Your heart will be untouched,

And I'll keep you
