In my silence, your words
Are too strong, far too bitter
I don’t know when words
Will complete

Your palm can’t remember the past
Never blend with the assured calmness

My thousand silences wavering in the dark
Sparks never step into the flame

At the end my silence
Tossed and clapped around
In the sequence of your sweet melon smile.
