You ask so much of me
and yet you want nothing;
this contradiction stands
always at the front
of my thoughts.
And your presence lingers
always larger than life,
always stealing the scene,
always in my way.
Have you ever thought
of a world outside your own?
Do you even know others exist
when you’re all alone?
I challenge you to break me
and you’re always ready
for the task.
Take my heart,
take my breath,
take my soul,
take your time,
since I’ve got eternity
left to burn.
