Bells…I hear the bells, and you are here, and so am I—listening, lying
Distancing, dying…soon this will be no more; soon I will shake you off...

Bells…I hear the bells, and you are here, and so am I—listening, lying

Distancing, dying…soon this will be no more; soon I will shake you off

 

Run away—shall we? As if it’s just that simple

Running away—am I? It’s not so hard this way

 

Arms…I feel your arms, so strong and yet too weak

You can’t hold me forever…soon it will be no more

 

Shaking, falling, breaking—they’re all just things to do

Living aching waiting—they’re all just things we’ll do

 

Tears…I see your tears, but they mean nothing now

But they do nothing now to dissolve these icy words

 

Voice…I taste my voice, embittered, thick, austere

Voice…I hate this voice; it’s poison to the ear

 

How sweet the angels plead; how poetic is their greed

 

How deep you seem to love; how soon till you give up?
