In the darkness beneath the starry skies
I yearn for you.
In the coldness of this barren forest
I seek your warmth.
In the harshness of this haunting landscape
I desire your comfort.
Walking these lonely plains of this lonely planet
I wish for you.
Stepping on this cold dead earth
I long for your warmth.
The moon dances, and yet you do not show.
The stars sing, and yet you do not show.
The planets dream, and yet you do not show.
My heart craves, and yet you do not show.
As I walk through this dead meadow
Drunk with desire
Mad with passion
Sad with loss
I stumble to and fro.
This jealousy I have
will not go.
Chars the earth
Like the sands of Sindh.
Your heart has joined with a stranger’s
You have left me here to die.
And so it is
That in the darkness beneath the starry skies
As I walk through this meadow, dead
All I see is your eyes expressionless
Your heart indifferent
When you left my garden
The garden of love
And named after you.
