i've got these two friends

who are madly in love

and you can see the joy they bring each other

they're getting engaged

and are so excited about spending their lives together

and i look at them and

really hope they'll stay together always

i've got these other two friends

who don't even like each other anymore

but they've been together for years

and spent too much time sitting

on the couch watching t.v. and

eating junk food together

and now they're fat and have lost

any social skills they may have once had

so they stay together, loveless, because they're

afraid of leaving each other

and not finding anyone else

they're afraid of being alone

and i know they'll stay together always

i'd bet on fear and resignation

over love almost every time

they've just got more staying power

in the hearts of most human beings

and it's only that it's only 'almost'

that makes it worth keeping going

there's a fine line between eternity

and a fleeting moment

Moi, j'avais jamais rien dit. Rien
