Fainting and flickering in the darkness you left me in the cold.
Sitting here attempting to warm you up in a night so old, and exhausted from the terrors it brought to you
You warn out from the exhaustion that is the night
Found my little light
Felt its heat,
And proceeded to place your hands out
Absorbing all of my energy
And I sat here covering you in my smothering flames
Hoping to keep you safe
But me being naive I didn’t realize you weren’t here to stay
Why? You say?
Because I’m not the spark that lights up your life
No I’m the fire that keeps you warm at night
Your want flash, not fire, so you leave when you recharge in order to find that thrill, leaving the passion
I am the dedication and new territory you need
But not the electricity you seek
So you dance into the dark and curious night
Looking for a new light
While I fade away in the distance
Looking to find the next soul attempting to achieve life
Will we cross paths again someday I’ll never know
But until then I’ll keep my flames lit, waiting to see your growth
And maybe someday you’ll want to be warm rather than blinded by some arbitrary light, and I’ll comfort you again, forever and we’ll both fade into the enigma of the night
