Energy has to be preserved Is this the measure we deserve ?
The constancy The heat The lifetime measured in a shared heartbeat
All transmuted when the bond is broken
To a dark dream unbearable even when unspoken
Pupils plagued by memories of light
Eyes dilate for shade haunted by bright phantoms of paradise unmade
Permanence was the grand illusion Transience was its dissolution
Knowledge gave no wisdom in this case Why else seek the warmth of a setting sun on our face
