I was going through darkness before I met you
It was lonesome, loathsome.
All I felt was the wind beneath my wings slowly leaving me as well.
I recall something different about you
It was fascinating, dominating.
It drew me closer and I knew that we were meant to be.
I remember the first time I touched you
It was satisfying, electrifying.
You became the light of my life I never knew I needed.
I couldn't stop loving you
It was aggravating, intoxicating.
You came back every night just to leave the next morning.
I decided to stay one night
It was idiotic, psychotic
because my love for you
burned me away.
