    feel disconnected
    reach out from behind the glass
    can't touch anyone

    I have no passion
    it floats around me in air
    can't get hold of it

    as slippery fingers
    on ivory keys
    passion evades, elusively

    she dances and laughs
    taunting my need
    I reach and she disappears

    Where is my essence?
    My reflection has no soul
    For I've come undone

    i'm standing apart
    learning that still waters dont
    birth my reflection...

    I looked up to see
    one hand reaching out to me
    reflection was lost

    took the hand and smile
    maybe this can lead to more
    pray for love and hands
