Jars of Sunshine

"Let me in", the message read.
I've kept myself hidden
Around the tattered remains  
Of a painful past,  
Still visible in the distance.
Behind a timid face with shut eyes,  
I just lay there,  
Unable to live, unable to die,  
Stuck in a perpetual decline.  
But solace comes from    
A thousand miles away.  
The beguiling light that    
Bleeds from your heart  
Guides me in the darkness.  
It shows me the way  
That I could never find.  
Images of jars of sunshine,  
And the words that sparkle,  
Flood my mind  
Taking me to such great heights.  
The windows, once closed,  
Are now open  
As I sit looking out  
While breathing you in.
