How I View You.

By Candy Cain

Oh if you knew

     How I view you

         From the frame of a tilt encore.

 Walk this way again

     So that I can pretend

         You’re not the flame my heart applauds for.

 So many viruses

     Inside your blossoms iris

         Dropping every single petal to the floor, they love me not.


 Nothing but a slew

     Of people who you thought you knew

        Who never could’ve known they were never who you thought.

            And you.  committed to being my keeper when I cry.

      I'd catch myself a wilting rose

You'd hold my head up high.


          Training the chains I harbor,

               How the storms have yet to wash away the embers in your armor.

Commoners couldn’t turn a blind eye to your blaze, 

so amaze them darling dearest help them navigate the daze.



          My star when nights were darker,

               Your orbit was my everything, a sight for sore departures. (You’ve seen it all-) 

From seeing stars and speckled pavement to specters who expect engagement, 

You can hold the conversations that turn faces in perplexed arrangements.

You can hold the torch that leads those withered wings to warmth,

So dazzle them darling dearest spread your span and sing on forth.

       Oh if you knew,

              How I view you

                     From the frame, 

                              Of a tilt encore.
