Eternal Flame

let me be the light in the darkness
the flame to your fire
I love with my entire heart
Let me show you true desire
Eternal love that'll flourish
that'll bloom and stay
just show me that it's time
and your not just the same.
Show me I can release my love
I've lost many
to GOD above
I've wiltered and weathered
and never been shown love
casted aside my entire life
to walk alone
and gather my thoughts
teaching myself
from what others have taught
awaiting the light to shine on me
to forever just be without
no clues, all doubts
all wonders and questions
never to be answered
all others want are posessions
and that's the eternal lesson
to forever be told
not questioning ourselves
too afraid to be bold
and thrown on a shelf
to gather dust
for lust is all we have
but eternal love
is the desire we grasp
so hold on for now
and stay on task
eternal love shall flourish
without having to be asked
forever and always it remains the same
for in this crazy world
Love is a Wild game!
