I was born when you were not You live on without a thought
I fall asleep as you awake You arrive as I escape
I am fated to die in your life As you are fated to live in my death
In the tiny expanse that is time You were so close that I couldn't know you
I could feel your breath on my skin But you were nowhere in everything
There is a type of knot in my soul Of an irreversible sort of want
That I should have seen you with these blind eyes And should have heard you with these deaf ears
But I was born when you were not And you live on without a thought.
