With Your Embrace

locked down
with no access
on another coaster ride
feeling basic emotions
lucky to have you heart
during tough times

the walls are to high
for me to find my way out
there is a glow
that guides me
in your direction
away from their hole

there is nothing for me
without the feel
of your embrace
wait outside the gate
I'll be there in your arms
before our lights go out

I especially loved the image of the walls "too high for me to find a way out," vaporized by the "glow that guides me."
