Truth lies just the other side of anger,
Somewhere in between love and regret.
When walls of self-pity tumble down,
We see for just one moment what we need.

I know that what I said to you in anger
Has severed our umbilical of trust.
And now we are apart, our love is idling,
While I undo my words in lonely sorrow.

I feel your fingers touch me, taste your lips
Upon my tongue, crush you to my breast.
Anger is a storm long out to sea.
By this sweet moon, I know you will be mine.
