I decided not to like you
only out of fear for your rejection
or speak your language
for you don't speak mine.

I will not humiliate myself in order
to strengthen you
nor call your name
you never mention mine.

I won't allow you to help me
cause it's actually you
who needs me to survive .

I beg your pardon for not adoring
stupidity, rather authentically
I show me and my true love


the silence of your broken heart
can be heard
from miles and miles away
raped by ignorance of the lucky ones
you find some water and some food
if lucky, some shelter for the night
no love, no life
your big brown eyes
just stare
forgot to laugh
forgot to cry
all you do
no love, no life.


I have to admit
the wind whispers
your name
I hide my sadness
escape into silence
yet from dawn
till night
I breath you
you enter me
and leave me
get inside of me
and go
however not even you
can stop me
from loving you
for as a matter of fact
I do.
