Burned by Love

Burned by Love
By Nomar Knight

Flames flicker
Stinging wounded soul
Heavy heart gasps for breath
And I ask why

Fighting for survival
Refusing to die
In spite of confusing swirl
Still wondering why

Just a puppet
On a violent string
Intense heat lashing
So I scream why

Reach towards light
Quickly extinguished
By despairs choking smoke
Oh why oh why

Sharper than a double edge blade
Tears of blood
Adds to the misery
Please tell me why

Blanketed by despair
Swallowed by evil's abyss
Yet I refuse to lose
Want to know why

Though love can illuminate
It also brings pain
Must fight on till death
Can you see why

Cause I'm stubborn
Refuse to allow
Loves burning flames
Conceal the why

The answer
Because we are worth it
Our love is worth it
That's why
