It starts with fragments of pain
Like tiny pins being pushed into the heart
The heart thinking he could take the pains; ignored
But this pain is like no other, so he cried
Crying out to the whole body to take it away
The body tries but the pins are like colony of ants
Tiny but lethal and infectious in unity
The heart skipped and is out manoeuvred by pain
Jerking in rebellion with all its strength
Too late! Pain has invited guilt, with guilt- regrets
Now a trio, their strength is stronger than body
The heart defeated, betrayed and battered, beats in his fastest succession
And eye tears for the chaos and confusion of the body 
All hail sorrow, the conqueror of man.
