Living walls between us

There are living walls between us.

Draw an invisible boundary

What is the benefit of our separation?!

It parts us from our love.

Ruthless living walls between us.


It is like dying is not meant for them

The tears are just a sight to behold.

(Didn’t they face with the passion!?)


Living walls between us.

They part us, even the paths

Constantly looking at us…

We are moving apart further.


Living devils between us.

They will not fall.

They are eternal…


Drown the hourglasses into water,

Put a rope around the neck of time

Released its the last breath.


Tied the clock hands to the stone

I tried to hold off the life

And live.


But –

Could not stop

My heart


Just like a clock in my chest…


It is not true when they say

We are lack of power when it comes to the time:

Time loses –

When it stops beating

My heart…


Unbelievable palmistry

My tongue is crooked, honestly –

I cannot look into your eyes.

Scattered line on my palm is connected to my destiny

I deceive myself just like that.


I am wandering of searching the line of love in my hand,

Without finding it in my life…
