The burning ball seating proudly at the highest height, burns the stoned alley towards a home without a light.

There a nameless man lives with no living thing but himself. Surrounded by less non-breathing things, to him was left.

Once he was known as a dashing bachelor, until a deceitful woman snatched his valor.

Now he lives with almost nothing not even a shoe, well he don’t need one as he lives locked in his light-less house’s own flu.

Spring blooms
came earlier than June.
Smiles moon
shines in starry cocoon.

All’s lovely
colors bold and carefree,
it was then
you’ve decided to leave me.

Your absence’s
a sudden nadir
cruel enough to
snatch my spring’s flair.
