Light into Darkness
Out of nowhere; the lights shattered
Within a moment; the darkness has filled,
My heart was no more; in a mood of lightness
My life has suddenly; twisted and disappeared.
It was like an abandon thunderstorm
Came into my life and destroyed my destiny,
I found myself in an isolated nightmare
Where I was able to define reality.
I clarified it as an empty hole
Where it was filled with cold water,
As a candy with a taste of bitterness
And a war which never made it better.
Though I wondered through years
If the lights will appear again,
It’s like living in a desert
And wishing it could rain.
At last I gave up and sat
On the solid chair of torture,
I’m still sitting and waiting
If the darkness is ever going to departure.
