As I looked into your eyes,

I saw my future go up in flames.

I knew, so suddenly,

nothing would be the same.

Life colored itself before my eyes,

the canvas no longer plain, you are the one

who ended my monotonous pain.

I watch as the path I was going on

burns up in an instant.

You reached out your hand,

called my name, insistent.

You promised a better life,

at the least, something different,

I saw it in your eyes,

in the burning glow, truth was written.
