I think this is about morals, it can represent a few things so I'd like to hear what you have to say. :)

This line was supposed to glow
Like a line of silver sparkles
Glistening against the dark of night
And shining in the break of day
*
A line so near perfect
It could withstand any storm
Comfort the heart of the beast
And put the world to right
*
A line without questions
Binds, rules, or ties
Just a line running between us
Playing happily in our space
*
But this line has cost us
It’s glorious glow condemned’s
The eyes once shut now open
I stand back longing to cross
*
This line forbids me now
And there you still sit and smile
Seeing me as clear as I do you
Stifled with want and desire
*
This line was placed by a heart
A heart so perfectly foolish
That it paved its own heartbreaking
Dividing me from you
