The locked door

I crossed the seven mountains,

I sailed through seven seas,

Then I reached the shore,

Joy emanated like fountains;

I wished you would be waiting,

But I found the door locked,

I fell on my knees,

Eyes wet and the heart moaning,

It was a long dreadful journey,

Through hurricanes and risks,

Just to be yours,

With a hope so tiny;

And now this rejection!

I am trapped in you,

No way to go back,

Caged in your hallucination;

You will never ever see me,

I will walk away,

Away from you and the world,

I will embrace the sea.
