If I am water

If I am water, you are ice.
Our essence is the same,
we are by each other’s side,
yet we cannot be one.
If I were too hot, I would defrost you,
and you would cool me,
when you’d melt inside me.
In the end only slush would remain.

So I prefer to be cold.

Dragon, 2000-2010, translation
