"only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything."-Tyler Durdan -Fight Club-


Are you my savior,
Come to check my behavior?
Are you my lover?
Are you my keeper?
My reaper?

Beneath warm cover lies cold and still,
My caring.
You say I'm daring,
I'm just enlightened,
You say you're frightened,
I would laugh if I could.

I hide my face behind a mask,
An alias,
A phantom to the world.

Don't love me,
Don't try to save me,
Don't propose to me,
On bended knee,
There is no glee in what you want,
My soul, you'll haunt.
My soul, you'll haunt.

You want to stare into my eyes,
But all you see is shadow in the eyes of the mask,
I would cry if I could.

Beneath warm cover lies cold and still,
My caring.
You say I'm daring,
I'm just enlightened,
You say you're frightened,
I would comfort you if I cared.

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
