Why won't love set us going?
I still long to see your eyes again.
We get closer and closer yet
Like parallel lines we never meet
Though we are on the same axis, in the same domain.
Lonely cloud crosses the clear winter sky
As I still wait.
No ray of sunshine.
Why is this room so bright, then?
Artificial lights make us believe the world is bright.
Artificial lights touch our dark hearts and stay there
Behind the closed doors.
It isn't love if we're in this darkness for so long.
For if it was, you'd take my pens and my paper away and mock my childish lines
And bring me to places we didn't have time, or courage, to see.
