Your light exiles my shadows,

Until they cower in the dark

Fresh memories we’ve made together

Re-ignite my spark.

Dazed and dazzled in your presence,

Lights dim when you are gone.

I breathe you while I can,

Knowing I wont have you long.

And every tiny cut

that pains me when you leave,

Is worth the bitter sweetness

for the pleasure that you weave.

So I’ll ignore the voices

That tell me I should flee,

For one more stolen day with you

and the love that sets me free.
