Why does your every word relieve me?
The sound of your voice soothes me, so much that it makes me cry.
Yes, it makes me cry; for I know that because of my sins I do not deserve them.
Why do your beautiful dark eyes heal me?
They enchant me, like the will-o-wisps of the woods.
Yes, they lead me astray, and off the path I have been exiled to.
Why does your smile spread joy through me?
Your smile is so bright that it burns me right into my core.
Yes, it burns me; my dark stained soul smolders I can no longer see.
Why does your warmth accept me?
It makes me feel desired, and I know that it must be a lie.
Yes, it must be; for you love everyone equally, regardless of who they are.
Why does your heart so persistently seek after me?
My heart aches; I wonder if you know what you are doing right now.
Yes, I ran from you once to save your light; only now I realize that you have followed mine.
