Sparks fly 

We speak in 

Lazy handshakes, distant stares and brief hugs 

Golden darts of sunshine 

Hiding under a tarp 

Afraid to fly and grease the sky
But inside us

Where rivulets of desire

Learn to find their feet

Sparks fly 

Jetting from the darknes 

Eager to burst through 

The tension on our faces 

I hope one day 

Sparks do fly away 

A somehow light this fire 

That we are afraid of burning 

Cos we carry too many scars 

From too many wretched flames
