Crazed from heartbreak, but still hanging onto that person.
It's hard to understand such feelings...

After catastrophes of the heart
Quiet down to a silent grudge,
I stalk the wind, mindless of all
Stares:

Intent on revealing itself to me,
So I could say to the world I have
Seen the face of the wind and
Glared.

Then I would laugh to play well my part,
Choking the time, never to budge--
Until you tell me to stop
This feeling

Of hatred for those blocking my way,
I shall accept my last embrace--
But do mind what I say
This time

From you neither shall I stray nor part
No matter where or how I trudge
The shadow of your voice
Casts echoes.

So long as I see that shadow running,
I shall follow on day after day,
Night after night, to any place
Past eons.

If you fancied the torturing start,
Who am I to bear you a grudge
When the past has befriended me
With tears?

Even after the mundane sight-seeing,
Your acidic heart shall never sway,
And I am left to my disgrace
All alone...

After catastrophes I shall depart
Briefly to avoid pain and dredge
That ebbs away my bitter soul
Through eternity

To end like the faceless wind,
To cry like a broken record,
Awaiting the day when you look
At me.
