I bowed before my indifferent beloved and saw

I reached the heights of love again and again and saw


I called out to her so much more and saw

I went on burning in my own fire of love and saw


I kept on stopping, stooping, and stifling myself and saw

I kept on writing letters of love, pouring out my heart and saw


I held hands, walked along the road and saw

Amidst prayer I opened my eyes in Church and saw


Go on lighting a bed of embers in front of my feet

Keep on sewing my chest with threads of pain


Go on, make my destination again a mirage

I have the heart of a sculptor, I am unstoppable
