I know I’ve said all this before
But it leaks perpetually from these lips
Hands to ears: I still hear “no more”
But from them this heartache drips
Repetition of my sad petition
Like sure arrows striking the sorrow of it all
A tormented happiness that has become,
A shouted stricken endless call
Of what is and what will be done
An undeniable denial eternally on trial
This my tortured exultations dream
Hidden in secret; my covert glee
Torn in two, never meaning what I mean
The one: dreamer. The other: you and me
Yes I know I’ve said all this before; I shall say it forever more
To tear apart this paradox that is to be,
To separate dream and heart
Is to reach into the depths of me
And tear it all apart
