enamored with the hue of my eyes
you can’t reach my mind’s depth
deaf to quiet protests
you put words in my mouth
bogged down in the trap of guesses
we are lost in the dissonance of feelings
dreams out of tune sound false
our desires pass by indifferently
the seeming closeness separates us
entangled in meaningless sentences
we become increasingly distant
love dies with no right to appeal
