I’m burning the pieces left 

To feel alive just for sometime  

With the flames of these fears 

Turning on and off, 

Playing hide and seek

With my senses 

It feels so blue and dark

All around

As a matter of nature 

We can’t say no 

To our desires 

We love 

As well, 

We leave behind 

the things we love.

We get left behind 

With empty reminders 

And they haunt our minds

But this time it’s different 

And I’m leaving  

just for the sake 

of your innocent heart 

Don’t ask about my heart

It’s already shattered 

And so terrified 

So I chose to save yours 

by getting away.

 
I can live up with your history 

Because it’s better 

than chording you 

in my glowing chain 

of the thoughts 

which couldn’t escape 

of my world 

which has never 

been the same

You are the first thing 

I ever wanted to keep 

But at the same time, 

I’m a forbidden fruit for 

your kind.

Because I know what I am. 

Maybe I’ll mess you to the ground 

I don’t want you to feel pain 

I’m sorry I can’t let that happen
 
So goodbye 

And I hope to see you one day 

Happier, so I can say 

A dream come true in my way.
