When love is broken
It’s spinning in the back of your eyes
Curling from your spine
Oppressing your heart
And you lie breathless
Looking at the still window
To the distance so far away
Where you cannot find
A place to rest your sight

A jolt of red light
Scattered in the deep silence
Of sky that started to pour the rain
Soft drops, so cold
Creeping on your skin
Like a venom
That stop the flowers grow
You asked yourself
How can a single feeling,
   manipulate your life?
