the world is cold. 
it is sad because no one cares. 
i am hurting you again. 
our lives will be lost in the exposition. 
the prologue hasn't ended yet. 
for some reason i feel it.
i will die soon. 
don't be sad. 

i hold my palms to my eyes. 
the warmth feels like hell. 
speaking feels like ripping myself open. 
i didn't want you to misunderstand me. 
i didn't want to look like a fool in front of you. 
you stand there with your hand stretched. 
i wish fear were beautiful. 
instead i tear open your seams again. 

i don't know why we are so broken. 
our eyes were like crystals. 
now they do not reflect light anymore. 
the world is cold. 
it is rebirth when our eyes meet. 
i turn away because it means nothing. 
we cannot help each other. 
you are stuck there. 

everything hurts. 
why. 
my chest is still hot. 
inflated like a balloon. 
does this mean i will keep going. 
that i am still trying. 
something within me is beating. 
was it there all along. 

nothing stops until it does. 
i can still see the sun rising. 
i am here still. 
so it is inevitable that i won't rest until. 
it all ends.  

the day comes when. 
your widened eyes embrace the falling sky. 
i forget about what happened. 
our tears turn to ocean. 
you fall like rain. 
i stand there with my hand stretched. 

will you take it. 

will you live. 
 
one last kiss - hikaru utada

evangelion has finally ended after 26 years. it's bittersweet. please listen to the song. 

this poem is not literal. it's just a reflection.
