Heat blazes down upon me, unforgiving and harsh

Yet that chill still surrounds me, I'm wounded and unarmed

Once more abandoned, self pitying and absorbed

In my little world of 'sorrow', caused by the weakness of my heart.


Waves crash around me, as the tide begins to crawl

The sound a sweet sensation, blocking all my selfish thoughts

Looking out to sea, seeing far beyond the life I'll lead

I feel my own insignificance, a spec of light on the ocean wall.


An echoing existence, your words have become to me

Your piercing glances resonate, not even i can pretend to see

A fiery passion i saw only at the start 

In my heart, I'm aware I'm not all you thought I'd be.
