That heavy water colored our eyes

it's been a while
since your spine broke in half
and pieces of your repsol
spread all over the concrete

then heavy water camouflaged someone's irises 
and blinded ours

but I saw you 
mended and reposed on that metal sheet
didn't have the strength to kiss you
wouldn't wake you anyways
couldn't even touch you
I just stared in silence

while the storm was howling in my soul
they've lowered your eyelids like a flag on a spear
(your flag will never fly again)
and that spear tore our roots apart

by order the wall was built around the truth
and over painted by screenplay story
even though it started to peel instantly
couldn't unveil it alone
not for a moment I believed in that planted scenario

but it sow a seed
so our roots tore apart

my ribs went shrunken
but I preserved you in the lungs

I'll breathe for you
