From the balcony, one can see all the world laid before him–
But if we stare long enough, the globe tilts crazily.
I have dreamed of knocking at my door just after midnight–
The absence of actual sound is what I find most unnerving.
If you’re actually ready to leave so soon, so abruptly–
At least give credit to the forces that push you forward by the moment.
So it goes on, so it will always flow, concentric waves of utter despair–
Until the fever at last breaks, the virus finally shattered to pieces.
How I have longed to reach you, my darling–
To tell you one final time….
That it has all been my own wasted dreams
