Bellum Divide

Bela, my Bela,
we’re cracking and breaking,
dwelling and dwelling
on this as we’re shaking
in shivering cold,
and you claim that you’re taking
your leave, but you’re breaking my heart.

We’re falling. We’re falling.
We’re failing and helpless
and struggling and struggling,
you look at our hapless
and pitiful state,
and you claim that we’re hopeless,
but I’m helpless to do but hope.

And Bela, my Bela,
Your beautiful silence
Is belling and belling
In echoing cadence
And shattering glass
In my heart and conf?dence,
but silence is all we can hear.

We’ve differed and differed
and damaged all this,
and suffered and suffered
and feared it amiss,
and longing to stand
in the raging of change,
this is our Bellum Divide.

Not as good, hmm? :3 It's one of my favorites. Though, I suppose it might be due to it having more personal meaning to me.
