Painful infatuation 
The only escape is 
Transcendence of the human situation
Finding love, illusory promises of elation
A phrase running through the mind of a lunatic
A false correlation 
The girl a yellow bird singing
The boy’s heart seems to stall
A sad and broken story 
Perhaps maybe nothing at all
