Cliff To The Heaven

Those touching things that you’ve left, those hurtful feelings that you’ve left,
can all be packed and sent to be forgotten.
The tidily clean room is now half a bed wider,
with the toothbrush of singleness,1 as if with head lowered thinking over things.
 
How sincerely this is, offering the echoes of intimacy.
What rust have you left in my dreams?
Just with a little bit of sweetness will I have to bear perplexity,
and eventually will I then reach a fork road.
 
Don’t give me a cliff that is like the heavens,
don’t coerce me to jump into a bottomless pit of grievances.
Stop dreaming in your fantasy with an ocean of flowers,
when there is already one rose for you to savour, and dote on.
 
Don’t give me a cliff that is like the heavens,
and stop pushing me into an end of regrets.
I am most paranoid about those romantic sea lights,
when all you do is light up your cigarette without cease, without confessing your feelings when I look out at the window.
 
Time is rushing in its way, while memories are swinging.
Whereas songs are weeping tears, while those lyrics are healing scars.
The brain understands things around, while the heart inside grows not.
To recover is the real hard one, only is it then that feelings can become so complex.
 
All so infatuated with the hugs and kisses, and the happy gazes,
yet then what is it that has robbed me of the sun you gave to me?
Using a faint prayer, to support a thick despair,
so then what for do I / what is it that I should run, from a sadness that is like a shadow?
 
Don’t give me a cliff that is like the heavens,
don’t coerce me to jump into a bottomless pit of grievances.
Stop dreaming in your fantasy with an ocean of flowers,
when there is already one rose for you to savour, and dote on.
 
Don’t give me a cliff that is like the heavens,
and stop pushing me into an end of regrets.
I am most paranoid about those romantic sea lights,
when all you do is light up your cigarette without cease, without confessing your feelings when I look out at the window.
 
The hardest pain to endure is the pain of not wanting to let go yet not wanting to love.
 
  • 1. implies “a single toothbrush” when you’re single, and so the place used to have two but now the person is single, so one remains.
Thanks!
