When I bowed my head in penitence
You didn’t even look at me
I whispered your favorite trill
You didn’t respond with usual thrill
Fresh leaves sparkle all around us
Blooming blossoms emit fragrance
They are smiling at your conceit
Your high headedness is so concrete!
Are you thinking of a new melody?
To match the surreal spring air
Are you waiting for a new friend?
To flutter with pure pretend
Your songs have lost their passion
The disconnect is dawdling between us
I am trying to understand this attitude
What is your problem dude?
Is it the angst against modern melodies?
Is it the effect of this chaotic cacophony?
Are you sinking into a gloomy gorge?
Or just waiting for a kinder world
The world of our reveries
Where love would be generous
Where equality won’t be a façade
Peace and tolerance – not a mere maud!
