I. Fire

I only hear breaths of fire.
Someone’s burning so much in love.
It could turn itself into ashes,
And could fly away with the wind.
It only wishes to be lighted!
Even through a desperate act.
But the fire is wild enough,
It could just burn and not love.

II. Water

I only hear breaths of water.
Someone’s drowning so much in love.
It could flood itself with tears,
And could swim along with the waves.
It only wishes to be filled!
Even through a pitiful act.
But the water is soft enough,
It could just cry and not love.

III. Air

I only hear breaths of air.
Someone’s suffocating so much in love.
It could choke itself to death,
And could flow in the voids.
It only wishes to be freed!
Even through a risky act.
But the air is transparent enough,
It could just hide and not love.

IV. Earth

I only hear breaths of earth.
Someone’s carrying so much in love.
It could tire itself and lie down,
And could be buried underground.
It only wishes to be strengthened!
Even through a threatening act.
But the earth is hard enough,
It could just bruise and not love.

V. People

I hear these whispers as screams.
Many people are suffering so much in love.
They could kill themselves inside,
And could still look alright.
They only wish to be fair!
Even through loving them back.
But people are clumsy enough,
They could just break and not love.
