Bittersweet


Sweetness is bitter in the end.
Sweet life ends in a bitter death
And sweet kisses in a stale emptiness.
Even when love is all around
Sparkling from dewdrops in the morning light,
Dripping from the warmth of the humid sun
And floating with the clouds on moonless nights,
Some invisible walls remain like a cage
Around you and me, locked inside
For the rest of our lives with no keys.

You and me so close, yet so far away
Like living in a dream of love
Where from the sweet longing to mingle our breaths
We wake up half-way through the dream
Lying stretched across an empty space.
Dreams, sweet and mellow dreams, some still alive
And others buried deep in the distant past,
With our memories fading all the time.

When the sweetness of your smell in the air
Floods my limbs and blood and the soul
I close my eyes but still the taste
Of a bitter loneliness
Is never too far away and I know,
Sweetness is bitter in the end,
For sweet life will end in a bitter death
And sweet kisses in a stale emptiness.
