If you could also share
These vivid moments
Our life-tracks would converge
More easily.

Your highlights are too highly bound
For me to share
And mine too far diffused for you
To comprehend. 

We love – we hate – these two for me
Are quite compatible
For feelings that are strong
Mean that I live.

Accept it so – don’t try to understand
My rapid shifts from life to discontent
Without vitality I could not even be
Let alone despair and love and criticise.
