You – you light up my world.
I’m stuck thinking of you all night,
Stuck thinking of one girl-
One girl who’s my kryptonite.
You’re like the sun, breaking through the clouds
Like a bolt of lightening, dazzling the night sky.
Ever since I met you, my world has been falling down.
I burn, I perish, I pine.
Don’t know how, you light me up,
Yet send my spiralling downwards.
Blinded by your light – I’m hopelessly stuck.
You’ve got me trapped with your mystic powers.
Floating on air every time I hear your voice
You’re like a 1,000 volt AED, you make my heart leap.
No matter how hard I try, I’m hooked without a choice.
I’m teetering on the edge, trying not to dive too deep.
Story behind the poem:
Written about someone who lights my world up in that extra-special way.
