Mask of eternity

They grip at my hair
I let them

Sitting in the void
waiting for silence
they weep
for me

Only understand,
the further away I am
from you
the stronger the bond that holds us together

Such is the nature of love.
the sky and the earth
my past lovers
now yours
for the time being

If you weep
let it be
not for me, but for you
so that you may shed your suffering
and blossom your wounds
into flowers

tell the others you love them
as I do you.

The mask of eternity is my sleep
