If you come closer you will feel
Your heart beating in my chest
I can lead you back to yourself
Away from me

I know it sounds funny but
I can’t help thinking you’re mine
And you’re not the first
To not be mine

There will be tears along the way
And the road is long
So bring your flame and I won’t run away
When you light up the dark in me.


You let the big cats out
It was yours to do and it’s done.
Don’t fear them.
Their apparent darkness, their tinge of death.
They carry the full force of life untrammelled.
The shimmering light and the dark dancing in vital form
Let them be, listen watch, learn.
