run from the agony 

run from the torment 

say goodbye and get lost  

it's not worth your seconds 



love with every tissue 

love with every vessel 

but don't entrust your body 

otherwise it will be seized away 



read the warnings and the notes

read the language through the angle of the body 

don't become blind from true colours 

provide yourself with vision



listen to missed words

listen to the diversity in time 

things change forcefully 

and you may have only missed a sound 



stay as the person you are 

stay the way you crave to be 

don't let yourself transform for character 

love who you want to be;


run from who you don't want to be.

      You know what, there is just soooo much wisdom in your words here. Especially the final verse.
      It should be a subject taught in high school the psychology of loving relationships.
      Great writing. I am going to send a copy of this to a pal who is suffering in a relationship at the moment.
