Defiant against you, stars
I brandish my stigma

Disarm me if you dare

I should damn myself
In shameless flair
Before I let you blaspheme
The air of those I adore

Defiant against you, sky
I sew no heart upon my sleeve

Take it if you can

I would spill it upon
These eternal flames
Before surrender could infect
My weary veins

Defiant against you, glass
I repent your misspent form

Echo me if you dare

I would recant, unswayed
This soft visage I bear
Before I forfeit a meager ounce
Of these sacred tears
