happiness(all-too-familiar sadness)

they marry and together dwell

racking my heart(ravenous beast; fangs

sinking ever deeper)

intent on tearing me apart

this pain, or love it never wanes

never tires

only grows like roots fast to the soil

and yet your body has gone

your soul ubiquitous, eternally present

in life we have never met(in my

thoughts we are well acquainted)

one day

i’ll fly to Nirvana(if such a place exists)

and if entrance I am granted

will join You there
