Eikä kivi tunne kipua




A winter's day
in a deep and dark
December
I am alone,
gazing from my window to the streets below
on a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I've built walls,
a fortress deep and mighty,
that none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship
friendship causes pain.
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

Don't talk of love,
but I've heard the words before
It's sleeping in my memory.
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries.
