This Love

By Yuu Ikeda

Sharpness of love
pierces my silent skin
that wants softness of eternity

This love is so sharp
that I can’t make a pendant of forever

Like needles of loneliness,
this love weakens my heart
takes energy to live away
from my soul

But I crave this love
My skin craves this love
