No More Light

Like a great wave
You took my soul
In the wings of a storm
I was consumed
You shook my foundations
And broke through the wall
And I was overwhelmed
For many months with you
I was out of control
Nothing but you mattered
And I let my universe
Spin out of sync
All of the satellites
Have gone their way
And we stood together
Alone amongst the stars
And silently
The distance grew
And our worlds
Began to change
The storms grew fierce
And the waves grew wilder
And I began to lose
The best parts of me
I have tried so many times
To save this
Because I still love you
As much as I ever have
If only you felt the same
Then this would be
Effortless
But the darkness within you
Is greater
Than the light that shines
From within my eyes
And I cannot let you
Darken this light
Even though I love you
With all my existence
I have to let you go.
