An unfruitful night

She was there

Like a fragrant perfume

From the blossomed flower

The lasting hope spreads warm

From the closed eyes

Flowing into the nerves

End like surge

Fell off like a dry leaf

Waves that don’t touch the shore

Exhausted without falling

An inexhaustible cloud

Hide her face in a dark blanket

An anonymous insect

Caused irritation…

The whole night …melted…in vain

Like a dissatisfaction under the jaw

Without aggravating any wound
