Orpheus and Eurydice

Tue, 09/10/2019 - 19:25 -- Rjenni

Walk, don't look behind.

Wait, she's far behind.

Hope, she'll follow behind.

Stop, don't look behind.

Walk, you hear her steps.

Wait, don't see her steps.

Hope, those are her steps.

Stop, don't fear her steps.

Walk, don't look at her.

Wait, is it her?

Hope, it must be her.

Stop, he looks at her.

She falls,

He calls,

To late,

That's all,

You broke,

The rule,

I wrote,

For you,

She's mine.
