In-Between

In-between heaven and hell
In-between life and death
In-between female and male
In-between the in and out of breath

In-between the earth and stars
In-between the cradle and the grave
In-between sacrifice and miracle
In-between being free and enslaved

In-between the seconds of the clock
In-between love and fear
In-between hearts beats
In-between the forming and falling of a tear

In-between the seasons
In-between the night and day
In-between the sowing and the reap
In-between the bloom and decay

This is where I exist
In-between lucidity and insane
But there is one thing not in-between
Existing in-between is eternal pain
