The Demon Inside

if i lost my eyes,
would you see for me?

would you fill my mind
with colors forgotten?

if i lost my heart,
would you feel for me?

would you fill my life
with undying love?

if i lost my tongue,
will you help me taste rain?

will you light my mouth
with the fire of your kiss?

if i lost my feet,
could you carry my weight?

could you be strong
enough to bear both pains?

if i lost the battle,
to the demon inside . . .

taking these things,
from you and i . . .

will you still be my angel?
will you stray into the dark?

live there . . .
with me?
