I Watch And Burn

They ask me to stroll with the stars
I say I’m afraid of the dark
I can’t feel my way through the wild
Why does a small breath ignite the spark?

Why can’t I contain the fire
That burns ever so strong
Where did I falter?
Which step was wrong?

I watch and burn
In the fire that I cast
As I took a deep breath
And drowned in my past

When the stars lost the shine
When ashes were all that remain
I walk back with hope in my eyes
For tomorrow there has to be some rain
