Treasure Island

Blossom Mist

Eternally Apart


Quiet a pair we are, seemingly together yet afar
Like riverbanks, we stay near, but eternally apart
As two sides of a coin, who silently love, but never see one another
As the earth n sky, who always reflect in each other’s eye
Like the shore that patiently waits, for its love the waves
They violently rush; the sea pulls them away in a gush
We are like the sunflower and the sun
Who see each other, knowing they can never be together
As the phoenix, the fire it loves; burns it to ashes
For the precious love we crave, we get drawn as a moth to a flame
We end up bruised, beaten and burnt, though we never learn
We keep being together in lame, realizing this isn't any game
It is destined; you and I together can never shine
We will remain as one, but forever apart

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
