into the sun

Icarus And The Sun

I long to get close to you, I’m drawn like a moth to a flame

Your radiance and shine are flawless, is it worth the cost of the shame?

I want to soar with you, pour my soul out to you, embrace you

But if I get too close, will the risk be worth it if I face you,

And told you what I’m feeling, just a glimpse of you is more than enough

To sustain me, however, I want to be there when times are rough

And when times are great, but like Icarus, I want to fly

But if I get too close, will I be singed, burned? Will I die?

It’s agonizing. I will either soar like an eagle or plummet to a crushing demise

The thought of just holding your hand makes my heart race,

I want to be let in Inside your heart, to be your partner, lover, friend

I want the chance to show that I will be there until the very end

Relentlessly longing, but not just for the physical

Soul, mind, and spirit to become united, the physical’s just residual

As the mighty Temptations sang, I can’t get next to you

Because of obstacles and fears, I like you more than I expected to

I want to hold your hand and your heart, through the day and night

But this journey only begins if I dare to take flight

Into the sun.
