I can feel her slowly slipping away.
Her love being eroded.
Perhaps it is all in my head but my turmoil is real.
Her coldness makes me shiver from miles away,
Shiver out of fear, out of the unknown.
Like an earthquake ripping apart the ground beneath my feet.
Like a dream where one falls into an endless pit.
But what can I do?
I am helpless against my fate.
I am being led by a cruel master named heart.
Bound in fetters of love.
I cant free myself.
There is no escape.
I truly hope this turbulence will pass.
I hope our plane is strong enough to survive.
I hope we put the right metal to make it strong.
I hope that now she’ll recall those moments we locked eyes in laughter.
I hope that now she’ll feel the warmth of resting on my chest.
I hope that now she’ll hear the echo of my melodic voice sing.
I hope that now she’ll taste my lips.
I hope that soon her sweet scent will intoxicate me as we embrace.
I hope that soon the night will end and the sun will shine.
