Have you ever been scarred by the moonlight?
Have you ever been scared to death,
by your big dreams?
Have you ever been scratched
and clawed by the angels?
Ripping your soul apart
as your hope dangles.
Have you ever get burned by the holy water,
left writhing and seething in pain?
Have you ever been torched by love,
left burning and crushing your hopes in vain?
Have you ever been blinded by a rainbow,
and left in the dark to wander?
Have you ever been duped by the trust
of the people you encountered?
Have you ever been succumbed
by the fragrance of the rose?
Does the proximity of someone
scrapes you a little more?
Does the calmness in the moment
drives you crazy?
Does the feel of dewdrops
blisters your skin easy?
Have you ever felt jaded by
the squeals and laughs of everyone around?
Do you still think
feeling like this,
you can hold your ground?
