I heard you humming a new song In some language which to me was unknown It's tune, foreign to me Pitch so high, my ears couldn't stand I didn't sway my head along But you, unbothered, went on, All I could tell, It was not our song In our dinner table, it didn't belong. Next morning in the kitchen Waking up early as you always did Unlike me, I slept in, with questions and thoughts vivid. The breakfast you made No longer tasted the same. New herbs and flavours discovered With no certain measure, you've sprinkled My tongue couldn't taste, My full bowl went to a waste. Some allergy it had triggered With extreme disgust, I spitted it out. Plants in the balcony, withered Added no colour, produced no flower, Without your care and mine, Some have already died. The knot that tied us together Slowly being undone, Now a different thread Attached to our arms, With strength, pulling us apart. If it is just you and me, If it is just our just our story, Why is it then, I still have to worry? If equation is in balance, Why do I feel, A different variable's presence?
