Words are weapons against the soul
That slice through cautious resolve
Relinquishing all conscious control
Feeling mental walls dissolve

My secret depths laid naked and bare
Heart is now in her grace
Enlisted for emotional warfare
I'd kill to kiss her face

From the precipice I plummet now
To embrace or shattered hope
I've got to find my wings somehow
To slow this slippery slope

Her words still linger in my mind
Our fleeting connection now left behind


~ I've pushed away all I felt, but the memory of how she made my heart soar is still raw. I am Icarus, she is the sun.
