We are as lonely as the night; despite the gentle kiss of sunlight, or the sea of masks that we drift along. But, in you I found company. Laughs and ballads that carried us to a home only we could find. When she came along, without having left, you lost all that was said. I tried every language and still you misunderstood. Barriers return and isolation tears me down. Still, all that is left I leave to you because it is only you that I have eyes for; which you could see, if you weren’t always watching her.
Every Iris Is A Voice
I have noticed that if you look carefully at people’s eyes the first five seconds they look at you, the truth of their feelings will shine through for just an instant before it flickers away.
