Pilot Light

the flame at my core
this passion for you
sometimes flickered, sizzled and sparked

yet grew all the more
as flames tend to do
and lit up the limitless dark

you left me quite sore
(red dwindled to blue)
internally burning my heart

but blue flames endure
they burn slow and true
and wait to reignite, restart

Emphasis on the “ig” when pronouncing the word “reignite”.

Yellow & Blue


yellow and blue
where all the flour lies
that’s where I met you
sweet aroma, ceilings high

it’s a romance for the ages
a story old as time
fell in love with the boss’s daughter
is it really such a crime?

you take me where I’ve never been before
your heart is wild with fire (and I know)
that you’ll share that youthful flame with me
as the chilly nights transpire

it’s a romance for the ages
a story old as time
fell in love with the boss’s daughter
is it really such a crime?

yellow and blue
where all the flour lies
that’s where I met you
sweet aroma, ceilings high

yellow and blue
where all the flour lies
that’s where I met you
pumpernickel, wheat and rye
