You are...

You are, like gravity, you keep pulling me down
You are, like insanity, you make me lose my mind
You are, like a sun, you keep waking me up
You are, like a moon, you enlighten my way through the dark
You are, like fuel, making me explode when i am about to burn out
You are, like lighting, striking me so hard when I am high above the ground
You are, like water, you make drown then you bring be back to life
You are, like earth, so hard to break, and keep you by my side
You are, like wind, you get into my sails and help me reach my aims
You are, like faith, allowing me to win when I am about to break
You are like endless fear, keeping me prepared for you to leave
But you`re like atmosphere, when I suffocate, you allow me to breath, when I`m having you near
You are something less, and something more
Than a random guess, and compehensive lore
You are the world, full of hope, you`re something I cannot embrace
You are vulnerability, bringing me so much disgrace
You are, like gambling, yet I keep playing high on stakes
you are, like exam, pardon me, for failing you
I still keep making same mistakes
You are like battlefield, my place on you I try to earn, but you abandon me
Cause you`re the peace this world deserves
You are, like smoke, only occur when there is fire in my heart
You make me choke, when there is too much of you inside of my lungs
You are like freedom, you make me think that I control everything
You are like speed of light, too fast for me to catch, yet every moment spend with you I tried to capture
You are like alcohol, you make me say what I want to say but can`t
and make me do what I want to do but I don`t cause I forget
You are like magic trick, you make my thoughts vanish
Then you pull them back out of your sleeve
You are a thief, you nulify my sacrificies, you steal my skills, and then my proud is banished
You are eternity, I will wait till you get back to me without the haste
You are ferocity, you are a savage, you make wanna disappear
Whenever I am not about the average
You are a temple, through you I find my way to heaven
You are an earthquake, you make my soul tremble,
You are the truth, sincere when lying, honest when you`re fake
You are the treasure, that I want to loot
You are mistake that I will always want to make
You are tribute, to my old self, you are my minds confusion
You are so absolute, you are like execution
Farewell, you`re illusion...
