I am a fearful fool
A fish dreaming of a hook
A moth yearning for the flame

Icarus has nothing on me
Even with these broken wings
I can’t shake those thoughts
Of a new sunrise

Loneliness turns me into
A latter day Narcissus
Longing to see myself
Reflected in anothers eyes

Love is a hopeful tragedy
And a refuge from ourselves
