here in my harm

You say you want me, baby.

to have my heart and marry me.

I was trying to match a pattern with my veins.

When will my hands be forgotten?

I'll dance like a flame for you.

You put me out.

There is so much of me you cannot see.

What is your passion?

I am being patient to better my dark heart.

But how can I wait for it?

When it should already be apparent if you have it.

No ring on my three.

No one is buried by me.

the fuel for my fire

May the moon be warmed by the blaze.

and the gods jealous of my brightness.

You say you want me, baby.

to have my heart and marry me.

I'm dancing for you.

Show me your eyes 

fill them with wonder.

Show me your hands 

I filled them with my vessel.

Show me your heart.

Let it bleed.

love me.

own me
