Dark void

Suddenly I found myself

In a voiceless depth

When time grew old

Flesh and bones left me alone

My only home turned into dust

Lamentably I proceeded

Did not know even

How much sick and down I was

Felt as if I became a passenger bus

Of a long journey

Dissipated in time unknowingly

Became skinny and cold

Tardily my sicken body

Lost its voice in emptiness

Plentitude of budding bright

Slept remorsefully in the coffin of time

Every drop of my melancholy

Became helpless with its tears

Neither able to cry nor crack down

Died in dark void

With time I fought

My tears and pains did not succeed

All my love locked and heart broken

Primitive hungers burnt my souls

Throwing me to the groaning void

Still I am trying to lift of my heart

To roll the sky in my favor

For love peace and eternity

Without laying down my sword
