you came into the room
and all else disappeared
my heart melted into yours
the brilliance of you premiered
my ear listened to you every word
for seconds turned into minutes
and minutes into hours
time became a single digit
time stood absolutely still
the rest of life passed by me
for only YOU captured my being
i saw or heard nothing …only YOU did I see
then one day, nonchalantly you did say
“Well, I found a new attraction…”
i was lost and could not understand
i could not feel your dissatisfaction
how is it possible to be so in love
and the other person is a million universes away?
how is it possible to be so saturated
and the other person does not hear a word you say?
how does one get so captivated by the other?
how does one play a song that is so misunderstood?
how does one lose themselves so completely?
how does one revive from such a deep falsehood?
English: This new image of the reflection nebula Messier 78 was captured using the Wide Field Imager camera on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory, Chile. This colour picture was created from many monochrome exposures taken through blue, yellow/green and red filters, supplemented by exposures through a filter that isolates light from glowing hydrogen gas. The total exposure times were 9, 9, 17.5 and 15.5 minutes per filter, respectively. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
