Thief of the night…

steal my heart not...

is like a wild wind,

you can’t tie it down.

It’s tempting,

but sometimes it hides.

We all want

to connect,

but love does

its own thing.

So I say goodbye

to you,


and let you go.

I’d rather be free,

with a big smile.

Maybe not

always happy,

but at least

not trapped

by you.


steals away the light,

making things dimmer.

It messes

with our feelings,

and I kind

of hate it.
