WHERE IS THE PROMISE NOT BRUTALLY KILLED?
Every drop parts and rains
Along with the broken promise of the sun.
Thunder threatens the world of sleep
Where children dream with their mother's fancy.
The lamp's dead cotton sits lost in thoughts
Only to peep again with blazing eyes.
You, my love, also forgot me!
Who now rules the kingdom of destruction?
When the light withdrew from the lamp's lips,
I sat and counted promises of the day.
Who keeps his words precious forever...?
Where is the promise not brutally killed...?
