Waterless River

We have known each other so much
still there seems a door that’s never been opened
where I have never been able to reach
these meaningless words in your speech
the missing soul and warmth in your voice
when you talk about everything but us
is it all a relation without trust?
like swimming in a waterless river
believing in a thing that has never existed?
like building fantasies about everything
and having nothing in reality
it’s the stagnation, the obstacles
that will always stand in my way for you
when you didn’t care knowing who am I
when I have always failed to know who you are

We stood next to each other
still heart being miles apart from one another
no soul to understand me, no crying on the shoulder
your heart is as hard and expressionless as a boulder
there’s nothing for me to believe in you and your words
when having space and distance from me makes you happy
so easy for you to part ways
is it all a relation without connection?
like swimming in a waterless river
believing in a thing that has never existed?
like building fantasies about everything
and having nothing in reality
it’s the stagnation, the obstacles
that will always stand in my way for you
when you didn’t care knowing who am I
when I have always failed to know who you are
