To talk would be to know

And there must be no talk

There must be no knowing

A silent pleasured companion

A momentary business partner

Keeper of pain never to release

What becomes of a heart unchained?

The ties that bind the pain to bear

Let not the acceptance of life in

Let not the thought of what is not there

The eyes

The eyes of love and desire

Only blanket the inner fire

A constant burning of one’s soul

Leaving scraps of memories to turn to ash

The air provides the distance between

Where only space now kept holds no pain
