Moth To Flame (2011)

Moth to flame, 

I'm sorry, 

But I just can't help myself...

When I think of you, 

My mind starts flying, 

Lying, 

Crying...

I get jealous, 

I get scared, 

I rage,

I hope, 

And I love...

Love you even so, 

Love you ever more,

With each passing day.

The mind says "forever",

While the heart urges "caution", 

I'm torn between the two;

And I, 

I'm the moth, 

You're the flame, 

I'd like to be sorry, 

But I just can't help myself, 

Can't get out from under my own two feet...

My friends urge me to DO SOMETHING, 

SAY SOMETHING,

And they want to help, 

I know, 

I know...

But I really want to do this for myself, 

No matter the outcome;

Help myself...

I want to be with you, 

But I hover, 

Undecided, 

Unsure of how to move, 

Don't want to get burned,;

Don't want to miss out...

Not if the opportunity’s there for the taking...

Darling, my mind won't stop going, 

There's too much going on, 

Too many wild cards, 

Loose ends, 

And questions...

I think I might be destined, 

To be forever play with fire, 

Forever drawn to fire, 

Like forbidden fruit or something...

And above the roaring in my ears, 

I can hear my heart beating faster, 

Pounding harder; 

Whenever I get close to you.

Emo, angsty gothic love stories, mostly some kind of poetry. A passion I didn't know I had until I was about 21. Something that I have been doing mostly consistently ever since. My pen name is Belasrose, my online name is Caerid Lock.
