where solitude is a song & loneliness is a dance



blue shades blinding my eyes

i’ve distracted the vehicles as I’m

turning and circling endlessly

like walking and walking inside

a crazy, huge maze



all the neighbors are sleeping

their lights are low or no more

i breathe on the air of space

where solitude is a song

and loneliness is a dance



the street is no more a stranger

at nights when I am returning

thoughts of dreadful precedents

rambling inside my mind

they make pictures of anxiety



i’ve done a lot of things today

my bones are weary and eyes are weighty

on this street i’ve stumbled on you

our union is not difficult

we build a life less complicated
