Near and yet so far away,
The pangs of love cut through.
We are only victims of the day;
Of the sun which reaches through,
And sets our hearts on fire.
Hearts rage in the blazing heat,
Pulsing with fresh desires.
Will we able to stop our feet,
From burning in these fires?
When hearts so oft’ rouse our feet?
Near and yet so very far.
Hearts smolder in the sun.
We turn away as our insides char,
For we’ve no choice but to shun,
What will only leave a scar.
