I look into your eyes and all I see are stars,

Glittering with happiness from the reflection of my own.

Every moment spent away from you, is a moment of sadness.

All there is to be heard is silence.

I can only stare at the wall,

Imagining your smile that is my sunshine.

But sometimes when you get too close to the sun,

You get burnt.

But the pain only made me feel more alive.

You set a fire in my heart,

A fire with flames burning in my chest.

I tried to put it out with my tears.

But once you start a flame,

And the longer you let it burn,

The harder it is to put out.
