I lie lonesome on the floor.

And this chilly wind knocks open 

Holding an opaque note

My disastrous soul within

Chronicle images pass by.

Without a second thought

I realise it wasn't my mistake;

It was Time's

Too young were we?

Innocence glittering all over your face-

Had love-sicken the


Silent glances exchanged.

Stand marooned 

Years behind of 


Numbness prepares acceptance.

Recuperating from this long journey made

Isn't possible, for the too exhausted I.

Love lasts, but perhaps, true love doesn't.

And the only warmth from this shawl around me says:

“You will Survive”
