And I weep
For your words are the dead
Hopeless and apathetic ash
Oh my darling, come to life!
Wake up and live!
How can I raise you up?
How can I bring to life that which has never lived?
How can I love the dead? The hopeless? The despairing?
What would it take to love a broken girl?
Whose heart is sharp glass
Whose soul is like an oyster hiding a pearl
Whose mind feels like an impenetrable pass
