Middle Path

Already made the secret out about you
Now a gossip among friends
Or a question in their mind
But your effect on me never ends
You're now a permanent feature
As thoughts like a jumping calf
Make me unquiet
As i lift the head to look for you
Look at the sickness
As we travel on the middle path
Between an angel - obligation
And a beast - sensuality
Ignoring obligation
Getting absorbed in sensuality
Lose angel
To suffer agony and anguish
Looks like invent some illnesses
To deceive ourselves
To make the journey
A little more interesting with problems
As looking for solutions
Keep us busy
Making us forget the pain on the way.
