The mirage of memories waves
In the mind
With no ending
I travel, within such journey
To grasp the reality, behind it,

As one's breath
Out of its grip
Life is the collection of tears
Collapse of love
Bitterness of the truth
A blow by the time
Such a blow
Breaks one's life and dreams
No one is there
To hold, to embrace
One has to stand itself
To face all miseries
And hardships,
Staying in the same circle
Until its last breath.
