A Sorrowful Heart

it strikes soundly

as fast as it could

like an arrow in flight

it directly shot the heart

as if it wishes to stop beating

tears rolling down the cheeks

trying to subdue the pain inside

headache paralyzed the brain

body weakness gotten me

melancholia felt around

made me lame and hopeless

never wish to fell this pain again

let it be gone for gone sake

hear thy heart’s cry

never leave any scars

for it will remain forever

as sorrowful heart pleading
