Cosmic Contrast

Love me how the earth loves the sun  

And I will love you how the sun loves the earth  

 

the moon is looking at you, looking at me 

praise me during the day, and miss me at night  

bury yourself in rosemary and corpses  

to give me a reason to bring you back to life  

 

killing you is hard, but killing me is harder 

 

what will you do when I die?  

will your oceans evaporate?  

will you tell me the universe misses me?

and cherish the art I was meant to create 

 

shining is hot, but burning is hotter 

 

you spill your secrets to the moon at dusk 

yet the moon can’t sparkle without me 

there's no happiness without some pain 

so let me burn myself, to feel free.  

 

loving you is hard but, loving me is harder.
