Pins of regret pinch the skin on your limbs,

Fierce evil needles pierce your body,

You are a fool and you cannot go back,

It’s not just the nights, but the days that are black.


You were a coward, a heartless ghost,

The misuse of power has brought you to this,

Take her for granted, go on, you’ll see,

You will live a life filled with cold pain and misery.


The moment you realise, the moment you care,

Comes far after the past, master of guilt,

Awaken yourself, pinch yourself yet,

The moment you realise you’ll never forget.
