I see myself reflected in your face,
And no, not narcissism, curious
To understand the bond connecting us,
You, unaware of me. Unaware with grace
That I am but a man who seeks to know
About the light that shines brightly from above
That then which strengthens hidden ties of love
As my emotions pull me to and fro.
Tossed about the sad seas of misfortune,
Riding the waves that carry me to pain,
And to this sad chorus my ears attune.
Deafening, the dread sound drives me insane,
Love was so ill-fated that I assumed
I could hold you close. Now I love in vain.
