I am on such an edge that
I cannot bear, afford
And suffer from sufferings
It scares, hurts and breaks
Even if I imagine the journey
With a new
And stranger life-companion
Since I can breathe, alone

And grief

Which holds the lies and tricks,
Representing false, fake
And ugly affection
Oh God, protect me
From such ones
Since I adore You
Only for Your worship.
