Thirteen. Fourteen.

They see you in a form of a lover
Dressed by the idea named "together."
That even though hearts may truly suffer,
Love as they say is able to conquer.

I'm sure that I'm not a bitter maiden.
I just want proof and something that is seen.
Do you trust in something temporary?
And man is somehow changing constantly.

If you want me to see your true essence,
Convince me about your real existence,
Make me believe in you and your presence.
And tell me that you truly have a sense.

People often treat you as happiness.
But life is best with a drop of sadness.
One. Three. One. Four. Let me be your witness,
In this perfect world with sweet bitterness.
