Fire and Ice

2/28/05

Like shadows, you disappear

When light comes to eye.

Like darkness, you consume

Every light, every glint

Inside of my heart

Like twilight, you're beautiful

To every onlooker that sees

Like auroras, you captivate

Every second, every breath

Of this body—me

Like ghosts, you're haunting

The old houses in my mind

Like demons, you posses

Every part, every inch

Of this soul

Like ice, my heart is

Cold and made of stone

Like fire, your love warms

Every frost, every chill

Of my heart
