What is that string?
Which binds me with you,
After all those years of abstinence
Why can't we just cut it loose?
***
Was that something eternal?
Written before we even got this life,
A faded scar in our frail hands,
Or is it something we alone created?
***
Can it be our destiny?
To be together for a while,
Then separate to make our own ways,
Why do we have to live this way?
***
Or is it something vague?

With no clear meaning attached to it,
Perhaps nature's idea of a game,
Is death the only end to this pain?
