Words can not be taken back

Once you let them go.

Even if I give all my best

A “yes” won’t be born from “no”.


I can not freeze

An hourglass’s falling sand

No matter how hard I grasp it

In my weak mortal hands.


The realest moment’s always

The quickest to fade to clouds

Happiest feelings get concealed

Behind memories’ grim shroud.


Why have we bet everything

On one single fragile stake.

Once the illusions die off

The mirage seems so fake.


Happily ever afters

Naive wishes from the start

Empty when heart is too full

Only full with empty heart.


We have flipped through

Our fairy tale book too fast

Ignorant of the ending

Coming up at last.
