Come Alive

from by JPR



It's the virtue in her eyes
That cages the lions in her mind
When they close they come alive
Blood runs deep through a clenched fist
It takes the coldness from her touch
It brings the colour to her blush

There will be no sweetness to the taste
When you choose to consume and not create
If that is your goal let it swallow you whole
When all your mirrors have been broken
You will find no rose tint to the glass
And a closed door to the past

And if that is your goal let it swallow you whole
When she closes her eyes they come alive

You dealt with the demons she though you lost
Laid waste to her reason and suffered the cost
Now her smile is brighter than it ever was
Guess you learnt the hard way of how to love
