In that desert that covers the distance
Between my senses and my soul
There is something hiding secretly in the dust.
Day by day it goes deeper and deeper,
Sinking in a breach made of nothing.
Once I tried to break the seal that confined it
In that sea of endless void.
So I started scratching and digging, and it started hurting
Then I remember it slightly parted its lips,
that solid, lonely door,
And a timorous shadow broke through that life-time,
Hanging down my crushed mind.
And there, there was something in the end that I could not reach,
Something that I had already seen before:
It was the essence of a life never experienced,
A quiet tear of pearl,
Keep untouched in that trembling shell of immortal fear.
