And yet love exists
And yet curse exists
I let the world know
I love, I have faith, I’m afraid.

And yet wakefulness is
And yet we die repeatedly
And yet I believe in soul mate
And yet something has changed.

Demands from the world I don’t have,
A bed, darkness and you.
We step into nameless love,
The shiver like thunder struck.

World’s engines are shut,
Networks on roads have fallen,
A great desert lies around.
Wake them with a kiss, you!

Now I declare you goddess,
I myself I feel god.
Carry the world on, woman,
With children on my name.

Outside swarm darknesses
Here we are luminous.
Quarrel between religions
Blaming each other the same.

You and love, both exist
And death exists in love.
I like you more when you are sad
Sadness, in fact, is yours.

Knees I bow on the floors,
I tilt my head on the sky,
You are in my powers now
Although inquisitions want you.

My words are twisted received,
I return to the first syllable.
I throw down the forest over you:
“Goodbye, … I mean, stay!”

And yet love exists
And yet curse exists
I let the world know
I love, I have faith, I’m afraid.
