In the afternoon

The sun dried my wet cheeeks and

Quietly traced the indefinite contours of theese passionate days

 

Just by being there

I just firmly pull you close

Embrace you for no reason

Until it all ends

 

From the hill on the outskirts of town where we accompanied the monochrome funeral procession

I saw a dark grey sadness rise up

 

Just by being close by

The tears softly fall

I embraced you before my prayers

Until we crumble away

 

Our souls that don’t taste of blood

That hand that I pulled in was trembling

Made me feel lonely

And endeared you to me, once again

 

Just by being there

I just firmly pull you close

Embrace you for no reason

One day it will all end

Until we crumble away
