Before It's Too Late

Boundaries; mountain chains, vast oceans

Millions of notions

Between us.

I can't see you, but I can feel you

Breathing on the other side.

I tried to cross these boundaries

But they were so high, so steady.

All I could do was raising my head

To the sky, praying for a passageway.

To my surprise, I saw your eyes

Reflected on two smiling stars.

My hot sigh holding a message from me

Flew to you,

Desperately asking you to cross these boundaries.

But u stood still, waiting for something

I never figured out. I just hope you'd move

Before my hands get used to coldness

Before my heart gets used to hunger

Before it's too late to move

Before I'm gone.
