Candle in a Hurricane


Im wavering,
I stand strong,
for as long as i can,
but i am wavering,

I pushed you away,
I held you at arms length,
not letting you in,
refusing to open up to you,

But like a Candle in a Hurricane,
my legs began to fail me,
and i was no longer,
as strong as i was,

until finally a gust of wind,
so like your love,
knocked me over,

and my fire was out,
like a Candle in a Hurricane,
i couldnt stand strong.
