You+I=You And I

Darkness gives birth to light
and light begets darkness
Fire turns into ice
and ice becomes fire

You are me
and I am you

I pull out a string of melodies from your laughter
and place them inside each of my tears
You wipe my tears away and store them inside the basement shelf
When the droplets dry and all that is left is my raw sadness,
you sprinkle it over your eyes like sugar
I look into those eyes before adding a bit of green
so that they resemble mine
Looking at your eyes,
my lips curl into a smile that is yours
and before long, that smile becomes a frown
that is neither mine nor yours

It is both me and you
