desolate soul

i cannot love you, yet i cannot leave
you are my truth, my home
the everything i never knew i needed

you have made my heart soar
made my silent tears fall
made my heart burn and my teeth ache

i let you go a thousand times
only to come back around to you
still the same--it always is

our love a shadow--living its own life out beyond our grasp
if we dared to touch it will become an all consuming fire
so we stand back, but warm our hands on the coldest winter nights
