I turned my face away from love
to walk life’s path alone.
I wanted no space for regret or pain;
I yearned for a heart like stone.
I thought I had made the barricade so strong;
I walked on unafraid … but a tremor
filled my veins today as a song had ended.
How did you infiltrate my soul
that has been so long defended?
I don’t really want to know-
but it’s much too late-
for I felt music break apart my heart,
adagio … .
