It was written in

her smiling eyes

and gentle expression that

neither the exquisite moments would change

nor the pain would end as long as we lived.

My closed heart

embraced the burning sunbeams,

once perceived as shadow,

and continued to enjoy a sweet life.


a shining star exploded

in the frozen darkness of the sky.

How unbearable to see

it cleaved into the heart of the moment

and the black ditches

providing no refuge for its pieces.
