I hate how you sway your way in

Yet I can’t help but follow you

Though your ways are hard and steep

I yield to you

Though the sword hidden among your wings may wound me

I clasp upon you

And when you speak I believe you

Though in an instant your voice may shatter all my dreams

If I would only seek your Peace and Pleasure

Is it not better I cover my bareness and enter a seasonless world?

Where I may smile, but not Laugh…

Where I may cry but not Weep…

Lead me

To give not but myself and take not but from myself

Direct me

To refuse to possess Nor be possessed

Show me

To be sufficient upon myself

Ignite me

I want to melt in your Fire
