My candle burns on both ends,
It will not last the night;
But Ah! my foes and Oh! my friends it gives a lovely light.


It’s all just for me,
My secret, my mystery,
My encryption, my eternity.
It lifts me up when I’ m down;
Something in which I’d love to drown.
Energy surges through my veins,
I’m floating over the clouds;
Yet I’m rooted to the ground.
I can see nothing:
Nothing other than your tainted smile.

On days I don’t see those pearly whites;
I realize why I find it tainted.
It reflects your heart
A painting yet to be painted,
A pain yet to be shared
A love too strong to understand.
Tainted with the fear of loss
Tainted with the pain of the ones you love.
I live to see it every day
And I will see it until I die
No matter what you say
We’ll be together
I promise I’ll always be there
To see your tainted smile.

To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

This is adorable! I like how it almost condradicts itself...the whole tainted smile part.
