Your absence
Is my presence felt
Your goodbye
My worry song
It echoes like a gong
In my worried soul

Your absence
Speaks volumes of words
Joyfully painful
Tears flow like ocean
To the shore of my face
Misery ties me down
On my knees
Wrinkles marry my skin
I walk the nights
Not paying homage to sleep
As for the sun
It matches me like a tournament

On a dry grass

Where are you?

Before your absence
Has become like a sweet pain
Running my brain like a runny stomach?

Your absence is my present
In a comfortable misery
Eating the bones of my heart
Creating a beast of zero heart in me

Darkness covers my life

Like a wood in the forest

Where are you?
