I Didn't Want to be Your Reason





I came here with pure intention
but you made me feel like a hunter in the snow...
I gave you all my love
but couldn't slip it between the net of your scars...
I tried to help you with your demons
but you chose to fight alone...
I offered a shoulder for rest and comfort
but you chose the moon and stars...
You said you'd never lie
but you never tell the truth...
You offered me a place in your heart
but it's feeding the fires of the chaos...
You tried to cast a shadow
taint everything on earth...
You said I was the reason
for you to leave your past...

I didn't want to be your reason...
I think I should've slip away into the night..
Your love for me didn’t disappear,
it never really existed, it was just the light...

Concept realized shortly after my wedding in 1997. It sat dormant for years. I just found it and finished it. A little on the dark side, but that was many years ago...
