I just want to stay

 

Out here

In the clear

And cold

November night with you

 

Walking along the streets

The endless, lifeless streets

Where darkness is torn apart

By the shine of the street lights

 

Windows – the theatres of life

Only light. No motion. No life

No one home

Buildings left cold and alone

 

The cars driven by detached people

Not people. Only persons. Entities

Occupied with themselves

Regardless of the world around them

 

But here I am

With you

Oh! Sweet, fantastic you

You that will never leave me

You that can never leave me

For my heart is filled with you

Only you

 

Red lights pass me

Still no acts in the windows

Dead. They’re dead. Inside

 

No light in their eyes

No magic in their smiles

No truth in them

And darkness. Endless darkness

 

A darkness in which

I cannot be a part

As they have never

And will never

See the beauty that so

Vividly lives in darkness

 

Alas! I feel sorry for you

Stone-hearted people

 

Luckily, there is you

To whisper in my ear

Your voice still so alive

Bringing peace and calm

To my soul

 

While they

They sit there

Staring with their dead eyes

Onto the pictures

Of rapidly changing colours

Brainless rubbish

Meaningless

Like them

 

If they could only take a moment

And listen to you

Carefully

With their eyes closed

In darkness

 

Salvation
