Firefly

Standard

I was realizing today that it has been 4 months since I have been out of the dark tunnel and into the light. I thought it was about time I shared that journey, into the right kind of love, with everyone.

I am going crazyFirefly
Somebody please save me from myself
I don’t want to make the same mistakes
I want to get it right
This time.
Because you deserve better than the hurt I bring
I want to keep you smiling
Maybe it’s best you stay away from me
But that’s not what my heart is asking.
Yeah, baby I am bad news
But I guess the choice is up to you…
Oh no, I am drowning
Somebody please save me from myself.
I know I am all screwed up
I don’t want to get you caught
In my mess
It’s either you set me free
Or get locked in this cage with me
Is it really worth the chance?
Because you deserve better than the hurt I bring
I want to keep you smiling
Maybe it’s best you stay away from me
But that’s not what my heart is asking.
Yeah, baby I am bad news
But I guess the choice is up to you…
I am going crazy
Are you going to be the one to save me?
Are you the lantern glowing in the dark night?
A firefly?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This was their response:

Follow me here, there’s no need to fear
I’ll guide you through the night
And when your hope is low, don’t let it show
It’s just one small moment in time
Let that moment end tonight
I’ll be your firefly
Together we can burn bright.

Could some one please save me? The thought was nothing but a gurgle of hope spread like wings in my chest. Any body… The sea took my body and its cool body covered me in its caress. My hand was the only part left touched by air. I feebly lifted it reaching for the sky with my fingers.

But as the lack of oxygen became a bloody scream echoing inside my head, every ounce of strength seemed to leave. The minuscule waves lapsed over my palm, silky and smooth like spit from its tongue. The sun filtering in overhead became dim as I started to sink into the grim.

Suddenly some one else’s skin was on mine; warm, comforting, and divine. I was swifted away, no longer the drowning man, and brought to the surface once again. My lungs burned with saltwater draining out my mouth from inside my chest.

On her purple eyes mine rest. A pink star exploded around her pupil, its dust drifting around her iris. I blinked, needing to make sure she was real, but when I looked again she had disappeared.

At the vast ocean I gazed. I had almost lost my life that day. Beyond the horizon a teal tail soared. I waved goodbye to my savior.
