Heaven and hell; ecstasy and anguish; despair and hope
Intermingle with his personal version of her agony.
Strange walls listen to sounds of kisses…
As lovers meet or say their goodbyes.
Her personal version of his distress
Becomes stumbling stone or reason for quarrels
Fierce or tearful according to their inner turmoil.
How can two souls discover each other
If time or significance disturb the affair?
Who can decide whether morals or maxims
Should influence that which was precious and true?
Let one, who can honestly disown transgression
Judge if two characters truly could fail:
The sweetness, the blissful distraction must matter
Or why would they simply fall head-over-heels?
Was everything right in their current relations
Would something have happened without outer grounds?
Who carries the guilt for those happy relapses
When nothing that mattered could stop those wild hearts?
The age-old disturbance brings tougher confusion
The longer and harder the trial persists
But somewhere in hiding, the one silver lining
Redeems and forgoes irreversible joy.
