Walking at daybreak, I compare you
Behind the mountain, a rising sun.
And I suddenly feel like the moon,
We could never, ever be one.
And there you are, a body of water,
Drowning, I’ll take the risk.
But we are like water and oil
Forever could never mix.
Like the calendar flipping its pages,
Hands of clock chasing in ages,
Winter, spring, summer, and fall,
Existing together I could never recall.
And when I come to you face to face,
All I could feel is a labyrinth.
No meeting, no talking just like a maze,
As if my existence was never a hint.
Still you are so inevitable,
I always get sensitized.
You are becoming an oxygen,
I could never antagonize.
Forever your name only I could utter
For all we do is to avoid each other.
Never could I say, “Love is in the air”
In this so-called immiscible love affair.
