Light Me Up

Light Me Up

Frozen numb, my hard soul,
Stood aloof, a flawed whole,
Passer’s by, glanced no sight,
I offered none, warmth or light.

Ignorance froze, solid white,
Knowledge none, sans light
I waited in dark, unlit,
Damp and cold, my spirit.

Then you came, lit my way,

Kindled, stole darkness away,
My soul, glowed, alight,
Lovers seeking through the night.

Lit, long I burnt away,
Brightened paths, never sway,
Soon I lost, my hard shell,
My scent lingers, in hearts dwell.
