Because I love you…

I will travel a long mile on thorny roads
Weaving my hair into knots
And make my heart beat your closest ally

I will parade around the glittering stars of your mind
Occupying you with my sweet cologne
I will tell you how much I love you
Only in my dreams

I will not yield to your requests,
Pretend not to love you
Because I love you secretly and silently
Forgive me…
