More than once in the depth of
Darkness have I strongly felt
The whole earth shaking
But only to realise the next day
There was no earthquake at all
Perhaps, it’s because my deformed heart
Beat hard like a seismic vibrations, or
Rather, I am the only one lying at night
Who happened to feel the quake?
